The Texas Rangers were freezing last night.

OCTOBER 28, 2011


The news as
I see it and the views as I want them.

October 28 is … Plush Animal Lover’s Day and National Chocolate Day


A David Freese plush animal would sell big in St. Louis today. The St.
Louis Cardinals won last night over the Texas Rangers 10-9 in eleven innings.
The World Series is tied at 3-3 with a deciding game 7 scheduled for tonight.


I have always liked actor James Garner. This Oklahoman was originally
named James Bumgarner but the studio changed his name, without telling him, to
James Garner. It was probably a good career move.


The 83 year-old has written an autobiography. It is being released
November 1, 2011. I will report on it once I get it and read it. I am going
against my initial reaction by reading this life-long Democrats life story, but
since his stroke in 2008 has prevented him from being as politically active as
he once was. He is in decent medical shape for a man that smoked for over
thirty years and suffered a stroke. I wish him well. Like I said, I always
liked him.


On the NBC Nightly News Wednesday night, they reported a story about
the Mexican drug cartels recruiting American youngsters to move drugs over the
border. The story was based in Maverick County Texas.

Apparently Bernie Madoff was only good at one thing or perhaps he was
not really trying. He had to know his stocking was only going to have coal in
it Christmas morning. Ruth Madoff, wife of disgraced Ponzi schemer
Bernard Madoff, told “60 Minutes” that the couple was so distraught
over her husband’s crimes that they attempted suicide together.


“I don’t know whose idea it was, but we
decided to kill ourselves because it was so horrendous what was
happening,” Ruth Madoff tells reporter Morley Safer. “We had terrible
phone calls. Hate mail, just beyond anything and I said ‘…I just can’t go on
anymore.’ ”


On Christmas Eve, Ruth and Bernie went through
with the suicide pact. It obviously did not work since she is talking about it.
It could be to improve the marketability of her inevitable tell-all book.


How much is enough? The biggest thing wrong with
this story is that it is Exxon Mobil and not me. The fact big oil companies get
taxpayers money is also upsetting.


Exxon Mobil says its net income rose 41 percent in the third quarter as
higher oil and natural gas prices made up for lower production.


The largest publicly traded oil company earned $10.33 billion, or $2.13
per share. That compared with $7.35 billion, or $1.44 per share, a year
earlier. Revenue rose 32 percent to $125.3 billion. Analysts had expected
earnings of $2.12 per share on revenue of $118.5 billion, according to FactSet.


Oil production fell 7 percent to 2.25 million barrels per day while
natural gas production slipped 3 percent to 4.28 million cubic feet per day. Production
fell, causing an artificial shortage which in turn caused prices to rise.


Exxon Mobil made $10.33 billion in the third quarter. That adds up to a yearly
profit of $41.32 billion.
That is $3.4433 billion per month or around $113 million a day. Let me repeat
that; $113 million dollars per day in profits.


Exxon Mobil makes Bernie Madoff look like a
school boy.


Just a couple of thoughts I had and you should too or at least think
