Marketplace Scratch Pad

Just a minute

Scott Jagow Oct 16, 2009

I’ve been doing the podcast, so pardon me not writing you
Sometimes on Fridays, there’s just so much to do,
But I come with a gift, a gift of the times
And yes, there’s a reason this blog post rhymes.

Introducing our new web feature, the Marketplace Minute with Bill Radke. All the week’s business news crammed into a 60 second poem. Enjoy!
