WBNS-10TV: Columbus police searching for four masked men

Now at first glance this article from the Columbus Dispatch seems ok.

But I got to thinking that it is a somewhat difficult task, even for Columbus' finest to search a metro area of one million people, none of whom, unless it's Halloween, for 4 MASKED MEN.

Just saying.

WTF????

Nate Silver of FiveThirtyEight Blog Is to Join ESPN Staff

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/07/20/business/media/nate-silver-blogger-for-new-york-times-is-to-join-espn-staff.html?_r=0

" Nate Silver, the statistician who attained national fame for his accurate projections about the 2008 and 2012 presidential elections, is parting ways with The New York Times and moving his FiveThirtyEight franchise to ESPN, the sports empire controlled by the Walt Disney Company, according to ESPN employees with direct knowledge of his plans."

But on a more happier note;

" At ESPN, Mr. Silver is expected to have a wide-ranging portfolio. Along with his writing and number-crunching, he will most likely be a regular contributor to “Olbermann,” the late-night ESPN2 talk show hosted by Keith Olbermann that will have its debut at the end of August. In political years, he will also have a role at ABC News, which is owned by Disney."

What, now I have to get my politics, except for the national biggies from Politico?

"Tame Inflation Also Has Some Drawbacks"

http://finance.yahoo.com/news/tame-inflation-drawbacks-185900650.html

Leave it to Rupert via his rag, The Wall Street Journal (WSJ).

From the article;

"While tame prices avoid spooking the Fed, freeing it to consider factors such as unemployment, they may be too subdued. Rising prices boost companies' top lines and, ultimately, profits (Corporate profits are ALREADY AT HISTORIC HIGHS!). That is needed to underpin stock gains. With margins already well above average, corporate revenue must start pulling its weight. As earnings season gets under way in earnest this week, it seems possible, though, that year-over-year revenue will be about flat. This would mark the third-consecutive quarter of ennui."

"The inflation rate may be reassuring for the Fed, but it is cold comfort for stock-market investors (Well isn't that special!)."

Let's hear it for the 1% and their making profit vs. wanting to raise the core inflation rate (to ???).
