  1. It’s common practice for public companies to file bad news right before the market closes on the day before a weekend or holiday so that it gets lost in the shuffle by the next business day.

  2. For sure the article at the final link above regarding our country’s terrible infrastructure is an **EXCELLENT READ!**

    It’s VERY long, so most may recoil at first after the article loads – but for those who don’t mind reads that takes 10-15 minutes instead of 10-15 seconds, the payoff is one of the best articles seen in a long time about why our country, despite its vast wealth and advanced technologies, is rapidly falling behind many nations around the world in modernizing its infrastructure.

    And I’m saying this as someone who’s undergraduate studies at Northwestern University and 2-years of graduate school coursework at the University of Miami’s School of Architecture focused on urbanization, urban development and urban policy & planning, too!

    If you know who New York’s Master Builder Robert Moses was, or the book by Robert Caro called “The Power Broker” about him – or the importance of Jane Jacobs’s seminal work, “The Death And Life Of Great American Cities” – then for sure this article is for you! 🙂
