Larry to Melanie: Honey, I know you can’t write and can’t hold down a job. I also know you did not marry me for my rugged good looks or my charm. I know you are a gold digger. No, I am not going to give you my credit cards, but here have 911,744 shares of Oracle, now worth $11.9 million.. Keep me happy, they will go higher. Screw with me, well you could always write a novel about how I ended up back in six-story walk up again.

Bite the hand that feeds: Tech is in a slump, America is being exported (according to an old fat guy) and Bay Area hates the war in Iraq and George Bush. But thanks to the war, nearly $5.5 billion poured into Bay Area companies, largely because Defense Department has a new America Express Bush Card. Net gains for San Francisco 30%. Take Bush’s money, make San Francisco folks rich, who contribute to Kerry-Dean debacle, protest. Recycle! Perfect the fine art of hypocrisy.

    Actually, they don’t. This is one of those “conventional wisdom” things that has no basis in reality.
    Wife of 25+ years divorces *them*, uses her “spousal maintenance” checks to support her boy-toy or lesbian lover, and keeps the family Volvo.

    They all buy their clothes at Target, because one income doesn’t go as far across two households as it used to. ;>)
