Jail Time?

"Jail Time for Wall Street Culprits?"

Movie director, Charles Ferguson, who won an Academy Award for his documentary "Inside Job" - which looked at the cause and scope of the recent economic crash - bemoaned the lack of jail time for the primary offenders during his Academy Award acceptance speech.

White House Chief of Staff, Bill Daley, was interviewed on NBC's "Meet the Press." Daley refused to say whether "it is illegitimate or not" for the people to demand jail time for the culprits of the crash. "Politicians should not get involved. Producers, directors can do that. But politicians should not get involved."

Is this guy for real?

"Did You Know ...? "

This came from long-time reader, Sandra Price. Another good thing to know.

There is something that I wanted to relate that some people may not know and I didn't either until it happened to me. Lightning can come in thru your cable, like Comcast (or any other cable company).

This past summer, I was online when a sudden storm popped up, my modem popped and you guessed it, I was hit. I had surge protectors on, but I had no idea that lightning could come in thru the cable. I lost two TVs, my desktop pc, modem, router and a couple of DVD recorders.

Let me just warn you that it happens! After pulling my hair out and kicking my own butt for several days, I researched and found that a mere surge protector doesn't offer much protection.

I paid $47 each for special protectors. I placed them on everything that had a cable connection. You have to screw cable into this and then to the PC, TV, etc. It provides insurance if it fails to protect your property at no extra cost. Got them at Wal-Mart.

I looked at Wal-Mart online but there were so many gadgets, I wasn't sure which did what. I would recommend visiting your local Wal-Mart (or other electronics store) to look in person and get some help.

Remember - the surge came through the CABLE - not the electrical system.
