Kathleen Falk seems to be in free fall. (With people who put their money where their mouths are, that is.)

Interesting chart shows price for 2012.PRES.OBAMA spiked up one year ago in May. That spike corresponds with Obama killing Osama bin Laden last May. As you can see, the effect lasted about a week, trading leveled off, and then in late June the price began to plummet all the way to mid October before leveling off and gradually rising to around 60 where it's been since February. Will this season's values mirror the same season in 2011? We will soon find out - soon after the Walker recall election.

Speaking of Walker, just since my update at 3:58PM, Walker has moved on up to 69.1. During the same 4 hours or so, Obama has dropped another three tenths to 59.6

O.J., sitting down?

In the last 24 hours, WALKER.RECALL.WIN has shot up from 69 to 71.8 with the most trading volume since April 11.

This thread reminds me of the updates MadMind used to post which listed the chain restaurants one could find in Milwaukee but not Madison.

Except that one was better.

Madison used to have George Webb's, but they come and went (twice).

Odd aside here (not really a threadjack, cuz there's no thread to jack, Jack): had several visitors solemnly ask "Is it true you have a Chipotle here?" Apparently it's a big deal.

I am very disappointed to realize that this is an actual restaurant and not just a completely random post.

weird thing, I know people who love Chipotle and hate Qdoba, and people who love Qdoba and hate Chipotle. I can't really see much difference between the two.
