(glad it came out here as Heathers and not Lethal Attraction, ugh!)
Via AA at Glenn’s place..
…Ryder also confirmed a sequel is in the works to her 1988 cult film Heathers…
“Whatever you hear, there is a sequel in the works. I swear to God,” she told the magazine. “But for some reason the writer Dan Waters and director Michael Lehman don’t want to talk about it. I’ve been wanting to do a sequel forever. There is a story, and Christian [Slater] has agreed to come back as a kind of Obi-Wan character.”…
DOW closes up 230 to 8730
S & P up 25 to 943 (well above the 200 day moving avg)
NAS up 54 to 1828
Psycho market qu’est que c’est..bah bah bahhh crazy sheeples run run run awayyyyy
consumer spending is down
job losses are up
housing continues to decelerate
and they are rallying, m’kay….of course these are the traders who drove GM UP today up .08 to .83 cents a share, each of which is worth zero as of the bankruptcy filing today…
Treasurys popped back up to 3.70% that can kill the first leg up of the double dip, what will the Fed do?
and in other crappy economic news Oil is continuing to rally up 1.84 today to 68.15!! of course higher gas follows sharply, hell it never really dropped as much as it should have, and this hidden tax on consumers will lead to lower demand and lower consumer spending in other areas, as the millions of Americans who have to drive to work , well drive to frakkin work and don’t buy some Chinese export at Walmart which is of course why the export estimates coming out fo China are frakkin ridiculous and not IMO a valid reason to rally..they are based on American demand that is heretofore non existent according to the retail sales data….
it was after all just this morning that April consumer Spending data showed a decline of 0.1% and a jump in the savings rate to 5.7% unheard of in America for lo these many moons..the political class as Rasmussen now calls them may be all hunkey dorey with TOTUS takeovers and spending extravaganzas but Americans are socking away their cash and waiting for the other shoe to drop….
but hey why quibble with silly facts when there is a rally underway?! maroons…

1/3rd of GM hourly workers fired with our 50B investment….
General Motors Corp. said Monday it will shutter 17 factories and parts centers by the end of 2011 as part of its plan to restructure under Chapter 11 protection.
The list includes seven factories in Michigan and plants in Ohio, Indiana and Tennessee. Two of the closures had been previously announced, including a castings factory in Massena, N.Y., which closed May 1. Three of the facilities to close are parts centers, and three factories could reopen if market demand rebounds.
The move was expected after GM cut a deal last month with the United Auto Workers as part of its effort to smooth the company’s path through bankruptcy. About 20,000 factory jobs — more than one-third of GM’s U.S. hourly work force — are slated to go under the auto maker’s plans.
The closures also include assembly plants in Orion and Pontiac, Mich., Spring Hill, Tenn., and Wilmington, Del. Stamping plants in Grand Rapids and Pontiac, Mich., Indianapolis, and Mansfield, Ohio, will close. Powertrain factories in Livonia, Flint and Willow Run, Mich., and Parma, Ohio, will close. One idled factory will be converted to a small-car plant where GM will build a subcompact.
SUB compact, as in smaller than a compact???, good grief, maybe TOTUS will give out cars with food stamps cuz I cant see anyone buying a SUBcompact….
Shout Out to the GM shareholders, could be worse, could have Sams bad luck too…
