Saturday Soak: Your weekend Open Thread

120413-lightning-bridge

This image from SFGate shows eight lightning bolts hitting the Bay Bridge on April 12th.  How did you enjoy nature’s fireworks Thursday night?

You can also discuss this New York Times piece observing that California’s North/South divide is overblown.  The real divide is West versus East, and we coastal huggers are doing fine economically.  Inland is a much different story.  Stockton is looking into bankruptcy.  People moved inland, but the jobs didn’t follow, and then the housing values collapsed.  The coastal regions are more politically liberal and more eager for environmental policies that inland residents object to.  And geographically, a beach is not a desert.

This is an Open Thread.  How’s your weekend going?  Seen any good Open Houses lately?  How about those local sports teams, eh?

    Coastie liberals are all for things which invest, and the inlander conservatives want to be tax free and regulation free.

    Of course, laws which work for one half don’t for the other. But deregulation would hurt our water supplies, and inlanders don’t care that they salt their own soil. Ran into someone complaining that we had to leave enough water in the rivers for fish! I guess we don’t need fish, because their cotton is apparently more important than our fisheries.

    It’s a big divide.

    “Though Apple is still up more than 40% year-to-date, shares have fallen 7% in the last five days, pushing the NASDAQ down for the quarter.”

    Down 7% in five days? How is that possible?

  7. SEA Says:

    End of week update:

    “It’s been a tough couple of weeks for Apple stock: After hitting an all-time high of $644 on April 10, the stock has fallen 11% and was recently trading around $573.”

    Down 11% in 10 days?

  8. Michael Boltonestater Says:

    SEA, to answer your question: yes, it’s been 10 days since Apr 10.
