GE Taxes
GE paid almost no federal taxes for 2010... which makes sense since they didn't contribute anything with their products either.

Postal Cuts
The U.S. Postal Service is cutting 7,500 management jobs... and boy will those managers be mad when they get their pink slips in the mail, like in 6-to-8 weeks... if they're lucky.

No Inflation?
The New York Times editorial page says there is no real inflation in America. In an unrelated story, the New York Times is raising prices for its print and online editions.

Target Suit
Target is suing a gay rights group that it says was harassing its customers... mostly because they were buying polyester.

UAW Riot
The UAW sent about 100 members into a Detroit branch of B of A yesterday and shut it down for 30 minutes. Usually, UAW workers only kill productivity at their own plants.
