Marketplace Minute with Bill Radke 2/26

Rest in Peace, Hummer: 1992-2010

It was bleak
this week
to hear Bernanke speak
of the unique
Weak-
-ness that hasn't peaked.

But the market likes
the no-rate-hikes.
In Europe -- yikes!
Airline strikes.

Protests in Greece
threaten the peace,
Police
increase-
-ingly
fret
over the threat
of the debt.
And don't forget,
we have yet
to ascertain
the pain
that remains
in Spain.

Home Depot shows
their dough grows.
So does Lowe's.
Heinz, though,
says their sales flow
is thick and slow.
Akio
Toyo-
-da says, "My bad."
He looks sad.
Lawmakers had
to add
that they're mad.

Gas
is forecast
to rise fast
this summer.
Who wants to buy Hummer?
Nobody?
Bummer.

Arrivederci, SUV.
I'll see you at Marketplace.org.
