1.  In the future, all your minor quirks will be medicalized within 15 minutes.

2.  Exports?  You can't HANDLE the exports!  Unless we pay you extra, apparently.

3.  No controlling legal authority.  Bizarrely, it takes the FEC to point out that the money given to John Edwards and spent entirely on a coverup of the mistress is NOT a campaign contribution.  This is what happens when you try to regulate campaign finance broadly.

4.  Re John Edwards:  I have written on the campaign finance problem before.  Citizens United just made the problem even more strange.

5.  This seems insane.  Hard to imagine a bank turning down an account from a successful business.  And it's likely exaggerated.  But....rare wood?  Really?

6.  Yes, really.  At least on the Gibson Guitar part of the story.  The feds cannot tell Gibson how, or even if, they broke the law.  But in the meantime the feds broke into the factory, shut it down, and confiscated the product.  "We'll get back to you."

7.  Why does France have so many firms with 49 employees?  Does anyone think this might be a problem for growth?
