Marketplace Minute with Bill Radke 4/9

Don’t get excited —

that U.S. Air
has been invited

or it might ignite
a fight

Obama backs
a banking tax
while Citigroup and Goldman Sachs
and Alan Greenspan, Charles Prince

Geithner’s in Beijing.

just let it creep.
Don’t keep it so bleeping cheap.

Jobless benefits expire,
mortgage rates are getting higher.
Toyota was fined,
the birth rate declined,
and Apple released a “pad” of some kind.

Come see us by pad or by phone or PC,
by typing in “”
