Two Quotes that came to my mind early in the morning.

"But how do we know when irrational exuberance has unduly escalated asset values, which then become subject to unexpected and prolonged contractions .." - Alan Greenspan. (wiki)

"Neither we nor most business managers would dream of feverishly trading highly profitable subsidiaries because a small move in the Federal Reserve's discount rate was predicted or because some Wall Street pundit has reversed his view on the market. Why, then, should we behave differently with our minority positions in wonderful businesses?" - Warren Buffett.

Why will someone read Atlas Shrugged, reread it, discuss and debate its values on a sunny Saturday Evening ?

a) The Kathirikkai and Paruppu in the Hostel mess was really bad.
b) The 44 degree centigrade Madurai weather was truly unbearable.
c) Got a gone case for a roommate whose social life was as pathetic as yours.
d) "Atlas Shrugged’ is a celebration of life and happiness."
e) All of the above.

Update : The NYT link was bad. Fixed it.

This one stood out among the brown and black ones. May be it reminded me of the white and white uniform I wore to school dutifully every Friday. May be of the Friday after Diwali when everyone else in the school was in their new dress. I hated that dead onnu vitta thatha who happened to be a Pangali. Who expects a 12 year old to mourn for an unknown thatha by not wearing a new dress ? Well, Patties do. Anyway there I was protesting in white and white the next day. In retrospect I should have gone in some less conspicuous "color dress".
