business news in context, analysis with attitude

KC's View:
As is my custom at this time of year, I’m going to take a few days off…to take my eldest to college in Chicago, to take my daughter to see “The Lion King” on Broadway, to catch a ballgame or two, to do a little sailing with a buddy of mine, and maybe even sleep a little late and prepare for a busy travel schedule that kicks into gear next month.

So, starting Friday, August 25, MNB will be on hiatus until Tuesday, September 5, the day after the Labor Day holiday that we celebrate here in the US. The archives will be open, and I will of course be checking the wires and my email just in case something momentous happens. But it’s the de facto end of summer, and I hope you all enjoy it as much as I plan to.
