I'm in Coventry and environs this weekend. How's humour on a scale [1,10]?

CJ's last poem was touching.

All the people I used to watch as a child are dying off. (Hang on in there, Cuch.)

Yes, I remember David Bellamy, from a long time ago.

And what about the arrow sound?

The Gartman Letter

Better to sound like a second hand car salesman than a classics professor to sell punditry, I always thought. 
Gartman's "we'll never see $44 crude in my lifetime" will live on when Jim Cramer's "Don't move your money from Bear Stearns" is long forgotten.

OK - I had to look that one up, but it seems that it happened in about 4 months. And he kept on living! Cramer is the source of about as many crazy statements as Kramer, so no surprise there...

Agreed! Sales skills happen to offset weaknesses in many instances.
While, Cramer is mentioned - I once asked my colleagues how many millions they have ever made listening to CNBC all day long every single day. They got mad at me like never before (and I'm French).

Carol Serling has gone to join her husband somewhere between the pit of man’s fears and the summit of his knowledge.

The BBC reported one death as "Finally Natalie Cole has died." I hope the "finally" referred to it being the last news item.P
A case of "missing comma".
