Is Dave Nolan a good hire at the Toledo Conventions and Visitor Bureau?

Does it make sense to hire someone who was forced out of their job in Cleveland for extravagant spending? Well the Greater Toledo Convention and Visitors Bureau just did.

From the Cleveland Plain Dealer:

He resigned in Cleveland -- with a handsome buyout package -- in October 2003 after the board put him on leave because of questions about excessive spending and travel, including a jaunt to the French Riviera, and an audit that said he led the bureau in a "cavalier and unconstructive manner."


Google plans to make PCs history Google is to launch a service that would enable users to access their personal computer from any internet connection, according to industry reports. But campaigners warn that it would give the online behemoth unprecedented control over individuals' personal data. The Google Drive, or "GDrive", could kill off the desktop computer, which relies on a powerful hard drive. Instead a user's personal files and operating system could be stored on Google's own servers and accessed via the internet.

What If People Had Not Bought Houses They Could Not Afford?

I have read somewhere that there are “business cycles”.  Perhaps we are at the bottom of a cycle.  I sure hope so.  I have to wonder what it would have been like now if lenders had not lent to people who could not pay the inflated ARMs that were in the agreements they signed a year before.  Unless this was the lendee's first property (because they were living with their parents) they must have had shelter somewhere.  Maybe the lendee thought of his new house as a glorified rental that he would walk away from when he could not pay the inflated ARM.

I have a serious question about the Big Three bailout.

Let me prefece the question with some  background.

1) The taxpayers of the United States of America are being asked to loan billions of dollars to the Big Three auto makers.

2) Two of The Big Three say they will run out of cash before the end of the year, the 3rd says it will run out of money early next year.

 3) The Big Three say this "loan" is needed because of the millions of jobs that will be lost.

"Panics" and Recessions

A "financial panic" sounds, in a way, more benign that a "recession". A "financial panic" sounds like something that might be over tomorrow morning, and no one knows how long a "recession" might last. What I find interesting is that the "D" word predates 1929, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_recessions_in_the_United_States. Look at the "Long Depression" (1873-1896) which I bet most people were not even aware of.

Electric Vehicles In Out Future

This link, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electric_car, looks at electric cars. I saw that the Ceberus Corporation will be offering an electric Jeep with the equivalent of 50 mpg and a 400 mile range. Who will buy one? Will they be too costly to run because of the costs of electricity, or will they make Toledo a less noisy place (except for the boom boxes)? Are the "Big 3" betting on a public that is not ready to give up their gasoline-powered, go-anywhere vehicles?
