I was sitting comfortably on the white plush couches at my local car dealership, enjoying a beverage and a playoff baseball game on the huge-screen tv when my "service advisor" called me with some troubling news. Apparently the routine servicing had uncovered something troubling: my car's gobbledygook thingamajig could use an aardvarking. At least, that's what it sounded like to me, someone who knows nothing about cars.

Triumph of the Optimists is one of the driest books I've ever read. It felt like a reference textbook, and with that asking price, I'm sure it was intended as such. (Amazing how this industry is able to charge whatever it wants for a book simply as a result of a book becoming required for a course as stipulated by a professor, who is sometimes the author!)

I've felt like I've been in a book reading slump lately, as few of the titles I've read this year have captivated me. That slump was busted in a big way with two of my most recent reads, one of which is Shoe Dog by the creator of Nike.

I have owned Surge Components (SPRS) for some time now, but it is finally getting some love from the market. Business is not all that great, but some of the company's shareholders have decided to begin a proxy contest, which has investors excited that the company may be in play.
