Prediction # 1. Ben Bernanke will lower interest rates today at 2:15 (eastern time) to stimulate the economy. .25%
Prediction # 2. Alan Keyes has filed papers and announced he is running for President. Remember Alan, he's the guy who called Mary Cheney a selfish hodonist. Actually he didn't say that,he just agreed when asked the question by Michaelangelo Signorile.
Mike Signorile: "So Mary Cheney is a selfish hedonist, is that it?"
Alan Keyes: "Of course she is. That goes by definition. Of course she is."
Anyway, back to the prediction. Alan Keyes will not win the presidency.
Prediction # 3. Dorothy Davidson, the president of the Bessemer City Council, will find a way to prevent Elvira Kidd, the president of the Bessemer Neighborhood Association, from speaking before the votes on the competing bond resolution at todays council meeting. The mayor is expected to yield time to Elvira before the votes. The four members of the council who voted down the 4.8% rate deal that the mayor proposed, are wanting to use Walter Lewis of Gardnyr, Michael Capital as the underwriter. This is the same individual and firm named in a lawsuit filed yesteday by the city over improprieties totaling $1.5 million. This was reported on ABC 33/40 this morning. There can only be one reason that those four council members are so set on using Lewis. As Jesse Matthews said, they are "married" to Lewis. Elvira says they need a divorce. Council this morning should be very interesting. Be there. 9:00 Pre-Council. 10:00 Council
