Is Carnival cruising for a bruising?

Is Carnival cruising for a bruising?

It sure is. And it’s aching for a breaking. What on earth, or should I say water, are these people thinking? Anton Chekhov sure missed the mark when he said, “Any idiot can face a crisis – it’s day to day living that wears you out.” Apparently not these idiots. From the people who brought you the cruise from hell, who also happen to be the owners of the Costa Concordia (yes, that’s the ship that’s doing its best imitation of the movie Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea) now comes the worst handling of a public relations crisis for all of 2013 – and it’s still February. Idiots.

Shedding some light on this year’s Super Bowl

Well, it’s that time of year again. Time to grade the Super Bowl TV commercials. Although not right now. The Super Bowl is so incredibly overhyped, overexposed, and generally underwhelming that I, for one, believe it’s nothing short of fantastic. Geez, if we had one of these every month, the economy would be fixed; take that Mr. Warren "I can fix the economy in five minutes" Buffett.
