Note to self: when you start noticing that all you want to do is sleep and you don’t give a fuck about life, stop and notice that you haven’t taken your anti-depressants for THREE WEEKS. I even got one of those geriatric pillboxes just for this (well, that and the Claritin). That’s why I have no sex drive or get-up-and-go. DUH.

‘CBS News Correspondent Vince Gonzales reports, while its own auditors admit the military cannot account for 25 percent of what it spends.’ What? Do they have Arthur Andersen in there auditing? Jesus Christ. I think I’m gonna run for president in a few years.

Oh forgot this one, my employer announced last week the following: ___ expects to show a net loss of between $20 million and $35 million for the fourth quarter of 2001, compared with net income of $193 million for same quarter in 2000. Total net loss for 2001 is expected to be $1.6 billion versus net income of $1.2 billion in 2000. As we close the book on 2001, the worst financial performance of ___, and the worst year in the history of the industry, we need to be mindful of the steps we’ve taken ? and are taking ? to strengthen our company. Relative to the fourth quarter results, we have previously announced $125 million of restructuring and related charges, as well as Enron-related losses of $52 million after-tax.
