AT THE MARKET TODAY - A SUNDAY EXTRA: OF CABBAGES AND THINGS...


I am reminded of the movie, BABETTE'S FEAST - a woman flees from the French civil war and lands in a small seacoast village in Denmark.  The villagers' austere existence is changed by her arrival to its lonely shores.  An evocative take on how a community is brainwashed into thinking that austerity is the way to live.  They needed a change and they got it - deliciously!

PS  I saw a report today (Reuters) by Kevin Drawbaugh with the headline:
THIRTY COMPANIES PAID NO U.S. INCOME TAX 2008-2010.

Hey, guys, "we can't wait"!  It ain't fair. Pay your taxes!
