The Wall Street Journal Monolith

February 26, 2020

An On-Line Publication of the Anonymous Anything Society


   The lead story in the Weekend Edition of The Wall Street tells about Carlos Ghosn, a giant among automobile makers who had to flee Japan in a big black box after being accused by Nissan and Renault of wrongdoing. I’ve no idea what it cost him to jump bail.

   Mr. Ghosn is licking his wounds in Lebanon, the country where he was born and one from which he will not be extradited, since Lebanon has no treaty with Japan or for that matter, with any other nation, calling for one’s extradition. I have decided that this is not a good thing, but then, I have thus far avoided being incarcerated.

Wall Street
  On the main, The WSJ is an upbeat publication. It devoted an entire page this weekend (doorstep delivery on either Saturday or Sunday) to “Nine Easy Steps to a Better Day at Work.” Best suggestion: “Ban telephones from Meetings.’ Second best: “Declare all weekends a no-fly zone for E-mail.”

   The Journal could not avoid one depressing front page story: “Stocks Drop on Fears Over Coronavirus.” One can count on The Wall Street Journal to tell it like it is, when it comes to complete coverage of worldwide stock markets and the economy.
   The Journal has broadened its coverage to just about every aspect of our lives. This weekend, there is a great interview with Clint Eastwood.
