Thoughts

Someone forgot to tell CSX that the domestic economy is having a double-dip. The company delivered a beat.

"We mean, of course, the planetary pictures in the sky which are developing towards the tightest harmonic alignments in the most potent areas of the zodiacal circle ever record in Earth's written history. These portend increasing and maximizing intensity and rapidity of 'change' on every level of existence: mineral, vegetable, animal, human and spirit. Will capitalism survive? Will democracy survive? Will our markets survive? Will governments survive? Will humanity survive? Will Earth survive?"
