Senator Dodd Will Not Seek Re-election - Good Riddance. Sionara Succa.

Can't wait to see the next round of CC statistics (it you really believe any number coming from the MSM, Wall St., the Fed or the BLS).
Via naked capitalism - I thought this was worth throwing out there.Peak Oil Believers Wonder Why Every Government Ignores Them, Conclude It's Due To A Giant Cover Up "What if the silence on peak oil is not a betrayal of national interests, but a policy choice informed by national interests?
