61 Centimeters and 6.32 Kilograms
We're back from baby's check-up. The doctor says he looks great and T measured in at a hefty 6.32 kilos and and lengthy 61 centimeters. He had a BCG shot (intra-dermal), which like most injections, was harder on Mom and Dad than it was on T.

No Chat or Stocks to Watch Today or Tomorrow
Baby T is having his six-week checkup this afternoon, and tomorrow afternoon we have to get his passport at the US Embassy, so the next chat will be on Wednesday.

SIRI is one of the most actively traded stocks by the Ameritraders; it's a good one to follow for day trading. The stock has been in a downtrend since January 10th so it has paid to stalk it from the short side since then.
I've been experimenting with using Fuzzy (my trend-following system) to track the Ameritrader stocks and make automated trades. The last short was initiated just below $6 on Feb. 17. It goes without saying that the Ameritraders were large net buyers last Friday as the stock dropped around 7%. Fuzzy remains short.

Network and the Dumbing of America
Last night I watched Network, the 1976 movie, and really enjoyed it. Check out the following words used in the movie:
Here are some of my favorite excerpts:
"... when the 12th largest company in the world controls the most awesome goddamn propaganda force in the whole godless world, who knows what shit will be peddled for truth on this network."
"You're beginning to believe the illusions we're spinning. You're beginning to think the tube is reality and your lives are unreal. You do whatever the tube tells you. You dress like the tube, eat like the tube, raise your children like the tube, think like the tube. This is mass madness, you maniacs."
"You're television incarnate.... Indifferent to suffering, insensitive to joy. All of life is reduced to the common rubble of banality."
