Reuters story on the BAC cuts:

Executives at the bank are still discussing the possible range of cuts, but one person familiar with the situation said at least 10,000 jobs are likely to be eliminated as part of a wider review, the Wall Street Journal said in a report.

 

Sill Reuters headline writers.

It was a touch decission.

OR THEY HAD TO FIRE 10 EXECUTIVES

OR THEY HAD TO FIRE 10,000 "EMPLOYEES"

and if they fired 10 executives, it would be dirupt their friday evening bowling team competition they've set up so the "EMPLOYEES" had to take one "FOR THE TEAM"

Here’s a long-term thought about locking in delivery of crude oil way out into the future and using these prices to create a retail gasoline futures contract so that the average Joe can fill up his car with $3.50 gas for the next 5 years….

http://algofutures.com/blog/why-arent-retail-gasoline-futures-being-offered-by-the-seven-sisters-or-better-yet-by-a-retail-gas-company-that-wants-to-eat-the-7-sisters-lunch/

Hope that you find this as interesting as I do.
