The Saturday Picture Show, December 28, 2013

 I don't know.  I thought you would want to see what 1.6 million in American dollars looks like.  Yes, this is tip money to LeBron and Peyton, but to you and me, why, it's still all about the Benjamins.

 Take a look at this fellow.  He could be a tire salesman or he could be a brain surgeon or he could be a vagabond.  What he is, is with us no longer.  His name was Robert Wilson, and he was among the first of the hedge fund traders, a man who built up a fortune of 800 million American dollars, gave it all away to charity, and then jumped off a roof in New York two days before Christmas.  I refer you to a poem by Edwin Arlington Robinson...
This is the Lex Castle, in Sweden.  It was built in 1298.  Not 1928, but 1298.  That was a very remarkable feat, since the first Home Depot was not opened in Sweden until 1299.
Just so's you know, Castles Made of Sand will be open on New Year's Eve and New Year's Day, for all your timewasting needs.  Happy New Year!  Here's to a great 2014 for all of us.
