I am upset by this piece, considering I just invested heavily in the stick market. I have a very good stick broker if anyone his number. You give him a buy order, and he is on it, chop, chop!! He never rests. It is like he has an axe to grind or something.

I would like to send litterbox cleaning duties offshore. I'm wondering how that would work.
