Though I saw it all around
Never thought I could be affected
Thought that we'd be the last to go
It is so strange the way things turn

Linkee-poo on a working weekend

"Some employees are suing their employers to get better deals on their 401(k) options… But when employees at an investment firm that creates funds got on the trend, it became a chance to understand what makes a raw deal on a 401(k) fee." I was late to the mantra of investing in the lowest-fee/indexed fun available, but I can tell you that this past year I made more from the funds growth than I added to the value or paid fees.

Immunotherapy to fight cancer, getting more targeted to specific subtypes of cancers. We're learning where it works, and where it doesn't work.

So, the Trumpster finally admits that he was lying about the President not being born in the US. Now, David Fahrenthold wants to know when he'll give the $5 million the Trumpster promised when someone proved to him that Obama was an American. Also, the Trumpster promised to release his tax returns when Obama releases his birth certificate. One is already on file, we're still waiting for the other one. (Grokked from Xopher Halftongue)

"Major TV networks banded together to erase video of Donald Trump conducting a tour of his new Washington, D.C. hotel after they say the Republican nominee’s campaign broke with rules determining press pool coverage of his events and physically restrained an ABC News producer… As Politico reported, pool rules require that a pool producer accompany any campaign event that will be documented visually." Finally some courage. Although they had to confab before pulling the plug (read, we all had to agree so no one would "scoop" the others, note, a tour of his hotel is not "newsworthy" unless you're selling rooms in the hotel).

And then right after, the whole staged background collapsed. If that isn't a visual metaphor for Trumpster's campaign, I don't know what would be.

A breakdown of the myth that Hillary Clinton started the "birther" movement. Uh, no.
