Spring Is in the Air!

The Latest: Democratic lawmaker says green plants and interest rates should rise in spring

Rep. Brad Sherman, D-California, said that the Fed should take a page from Mother Nature and wait until next year.

"Spring is when things naturally rise," he told Yellen.

He makes a great point. The year was 1933. Mother Nature was working overtime that spring, making sure things rose to power. Without her help, just think where we would be now.

Hitler's rise and fall: Timeline

March 1933

The Enabling Act passed—powers of legislation pass to Hitler’s cabinet for four years, making him virtual dictator.

He proclaims the Nazi Party is the only political party permitted in Germany. All other parties and trade unions are disbanded. Individual German states lose any autonomous powers, while Nazi officials become state governors.

Pardon my language, but sometimes Mother Nature can be such a cunning bitch, especially in the spring, and especially in the midst of a Great Depression.

If chlorophyll
Cures every ill
Then it is my expectation

That it would pay
To run someday
A chlorophylling station

Memorized about 40 years ago, and apparently it stuck.

Joseph Constable,

When the job at the plant was outsourced to China, I nearly soiled my under armour.
