From Exchange Invest 2136: 24th, August 2021: (Tuesday)

“The old establishment, the Democrats and Republicans who intervened and surged in Afghanistan, are just not that competent. It was they who committed America to build a foreign democracy in the midst of a civil war — a tall order for a nation that can’t even free Britney Spears.”

EI WEEKLY PODCAST 109

CME Group denied rumours of a bid for CBOE global markets this week in a $16 billion deal apparently happening according to the Financial Times. It was one of those brutal put-downs of the never talk, know nothing about it, good grief, nothing to see here, etc, etc, etc genre. Quite spectacular all together.

Race Cars Will Run On Wine Dregs, Starting With Le Mans In 2022

South China Morning Post

For TotalEnergies, it’s an opportunity to test fuels that will help with a wider push to reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.

PLY: Forget 4-star fuel, time for ‘first growth” through “final pressing” I suppose. Will European cars be compatible with new world wine fuels, I wonder?

Meanwhile, rumours abound that a high powered racing variant will include a squeeze of citrus. Here’s to the LeMons 24-hour race?
