Brian Patrick Cork is living the Authentic Life

the unexpected is so predictable



So, in March, Martin Crutsinger, an AP Economics Writer, declares that durable goods orders are unexpectedly “up” in February. Read the story here.

He then turns around in April, and declares that durable goods are unexpectedly “down” in March. And, you can read that here.

UPDATE 02/13/2011: The link is broken because that story has mysteriously disappeared. Our media REALLY SUCKS. So do you Crutsinger.

At what point (and, how) does one qualify to be an AP Economics Writer if they are always being surprised by, and with, economic data?

Or, do people like this Mr. Crutsinger answer to the mysterious “they” (that damn smoking rabbit again)?

Mr. Crutsinger, and parts of the media, just might be a big part of the problem with their irresponsible reporting that keeps unwitting citizens and investors off balance.

I wonder if Crutsinger and Jim Cramer hang-out? You can see why I ask this question by reading a prior post, and viewing a relevant video, here.

Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

What’s All This About?

"What am I looking at?", you might wonder.

Lots of stuff.

Meanwhile, here, I discuss events, people and things in our world - and, my (hardly simplistic, albeit inarticulate) views around them.

You'll also learn things about, well, things, like people you need to know about, and information about companies you can't find anywhere else.

So, while I harangue the public in my not so gentle way, you will discover that I am fascinated by all things arcane, curious about those whom appear religious, love music, dabble in politics, loathe the media, value education, still think I am an athlete, and might offer a recipe.

All the while, striving mightily, and daily, to remain a prudent and optimistic gentleman - and, authentic.
