I'm sure he's in the "MD's readers are intelligent and thoughtful" phase of his lunacy.

I kinda thought the reason he stopped dive-bombing here was someone he works with got fed-up, cracked, and bludgeoned him to death with an ashtray.....

(of course any sane Judge and Jury would rule it as "Self-Defense", once the evidence was examined in-full)

Here's a time warp for you. This is from the recent MD posting about Harley selling off MV Agusta:

Well I sold my HD stock before the crash. Perfect timing. Don’t understand their business plan/model now after they killed their future, Buell. Harley’s AARP customer demographics and high labor costs make HD stock a bad choice. They can be profitable in the future but their market share will decline as Gen X and Ys get more money and take their disposable income elsewhere and boomers start taking pension and social security checks. i.e Harley will produce less but keep prices so they can make a profit, albeit nothing like the glory days.. Great to see MV survive in Italian hands. But I wouldn’t by MV stock if I could. Think Ducati and Aprilia will survive till 2020. Not sure MV, Moto Guzzi, etc will make it to 2020.

Sound familiar?

Buz, I saw that post, but was too gentlemanly to bring it to the attention of this august group.

Now I must go wash my brain out. Again.
