VIDEO: Oil feels so good when it stops

Bill Radke Jul 16, 2010

The oil has stopped leaking,
loosely speaking.
BP’s still tweaking.
Havoc still wreaking.

The drug Avandia
came in handy a
decade ago.
Now we know
the drug attracts
some heart attacks
but, weighing the facts,
the FDA backs it.

Cracks
in the case against Goldman Sachs —
they settle the case,
and the stock reacts.

Earnings season:
so far, pleasin’.
There’s a smile on the face
at Morgan Chase
and Alcoa as well as Intel
did swell.

Financial reform
survived the storm,
but it won’t stop a bubble.
We’re all still in trouble.

The economy’s in the gutter,
a ship without a rudder.
Food prices fall, including butter.
But the golfing world is all aflutter
cause Tiger Woods has switched his putter.
He’s not made for one putter — he needs to be free.
