Another week ends with the Index making steady gains.


New Orleans (NOLA) 17.31 +3.33 +19.24%

Some good news as HBO picks up David Simon's New Orleans based show "Treme", about a Crescent City neighborhood, post-Katrina, and the musicians who live there.

Treme Brass Band

Bringing work and attention being brought to the still reeling city can't be a bad thing.


Marion Barry (CRKMAOR) 1.31 -.97 -42.54%

The Washington D.C. City Council nearly unanimously in support of gay marriage legislation, with former Mayor Barry the lone holdout.  His reasons for not supporting gay marriage... rather, dubious.

Who else would miss the sound of progress?

A quiet day sees the Index making only modest gains.



James Toback's new film serves as an interesting complement to Barbara Koppel's also fascinating 1993 PBS documentary.


Kisha and Jen of "The Amazing Race"

With a narrow lead and within yards of the finish line and a chance at $1 million this pair stopped for A FUCKING BATHROOM BREAK!!!

Needless to say, they were passed an eliminated from the race.  These two were too dumb to make it to the finals.  Natural selection at work.
