Unrelated Nonsenses

Prison Break Started to watch Prison Break last week, largely because I was curious why the show can be so popular in China. The plot is pretty good for a TV series. My favorite character so far is "Haywire", despite his freakiness. I wonder if one day, when I wake up in the morning, I can be crazy enough to start building a raft on the bank of Hudson river and sail to Holland. Amaranth Wall Street Journal has a very good article on the aftermath of Amaranth, the hedge fund that lost more than $6 billion dollars last fall on its bet in energy futures, the largest hedge fund failure in history: HEDGE-FUND HARDBALL: Amid Amaranth's Crisis, Other Players Profited (requires WSJ subscription)
