The Nobel Prize published an interesting story about the most recent winner of the Nobel Peace Prize.

Cash for Clunkers

I've been put on all sorts of private mailing lists over the past few months. You may be someone who's done this. Moments ago I got this email.

When an important story like this that's directly tied to your financial security and future is not on the radar screen of your primary news source, you better start second guessing who you get information from.
