Bsi 1,389.46 +68.28 +4.91%

The Index shows another day of significant days as the Democrats leave Denver. The historic week ends thirteen percent higher than last Friday's closing bell.


President Bill Clinton (WJC) 21.54 +4.96 +23.02%

Clinton, whose presence on the Index may surprise some, has in the past months suffered a serious erosion from highs realized in the late 1990s. This week in Denver has started to reverse those losses.

I put my offices in Harlem, remember?

Toni Morrison (TNMSN) 19.91 +2.54 +12.31%

The prize winning author's bump is directly linked to the reversal of Bill "Black President" Clinton's fortunes on this Index.



Michael Jackson (JACKO) 12.54 -1.33 -9.59%

The self proclaimed "King of Pop", another surprise listing on the Index, turns 50 today and continues to fail to live up to the lofty expectations established in the 1970s and '80s.

A nod to the better days.

Bsi 654.32 -119.44 -15.44

The Index plummets in the wake of the levees breaking in New Orleans.

Never again.

Bsi 1,276.18 +46.35 +3.63%

The Index continues to climb after Hurricane Hillary appears to miss Denver.

Let's hope the Dems are able to weather the storm.

Clinton's speech would seem to be the kind of thing that would woe her supporters back into the fold. Now, if there was just someone else whose endorsement would convince some of those undecided voters not quite yet comfortable with Obama...

Bsi 1,229.83 +50.11 +4.07%

The historic nature of events in Denver drive the Index upwards.


New American Family Values

Between Michelle Obama's speech and recent news that whites will make up less than fifty percent of the American population eight years sooner than projected -- now's as good a time as any to accept that American family can look like this...

...just as easily as it can look like this.

The Black List

After being disappointed by CNN's "Black in America" analysts were skeptical about HBO's "The Black List". However, the program defied expectations.


The Invisible Hand

Well, at least for today, as early reports indicated a strong disapproval of an AP story on this guy... Obama "look-alike" who is in Denver for the convention. The market corrected itself, however, after belatedly realizing that if America is ready to have the nation's first black President, perhaps Black America shouldn't be quite so knee-jerk sensitive to the idea that some black people may look like other black people.

History indicates the overreaction may have stemmed from the repeated occasions Invisible Hand has been mistaken for famous African-Americans.

You know who you look like?

Hey, aren't you?

Bsi 1,179.72 -21.63 -1.8%

The Index ends the day in the red on anxiety that Hillary Clinton will be the kind of person who'd wear a white dress to someone else's wedding.

Which side are you on, Hil? We'll find out.
