CEO Pay: Money Well Earned? The idea that corporations should seek to
maximize shareholder value - and nothing else - was born in the 1980s and
rose to dominance in the 1990s. Before the 1990s, many people believed that
corporations existed to produce useful goods, provide important services,
generate meaningful employment and support vibrant communities. How quaint
that sounds today-he Supreme Court's Five Hypocrites. The entire
institution, as well as its sanctimonious judges themselves, reeks of a
time-honored hypocrisy steeped in the arrogance that justice is served by
unaccountable elitism. My problem is not with the Republicans who dominate

her new book, "Drift," which even Fox News's Roger Ailes admits is "worth

good company. Our March Picks include a scathing indictment of
white-privilege-based politics, a glimpse into the little-known history of

eye for the absurd, Maddow tells the epic story of how American warfare
came to be both never-ending and practically invisible. In the process, she
revives a radically old-fashioned idea: waging war should be wrenchingly
difficult for a nation, for that is what prevents unnecessary battles from
being waged. This courageous book deserves to spark a national debate about
the purpose of war-Hartmann's knowledge and wisdom is wide and deep. He

75% tungsten, then that makes 390 million ounces of gold which in truth

think they own but don’t. To put that number in context, it’s roughly half
the total quantity of subprime mortgages which had been issued at the

the number of salted 400 oz bars is zero, that the 1 kg bar recently

officials say there is no contradiction. The program is no longer accepting
new patients, and public health authorities have concluded that there was
no scientific value to it, Steven Gust of the U.S. National Institute on
Drug Abuse told The Associated Press. at one point, 14 people were getting
government pot. Now, there are four left. The government has only continued
to supply the marijuana "for compassionate reasons,"  'I have no pain'
One of the recipients is Elvy Musikka, the chatty Oregon woman. A vocal
marijuana advocate, Musikka relies on the pot to keep her glaucoma under
control. She entered the program in 1988, and said that her experience with
marijuana is proof that it works as a medicine. They "won't acknowledge the
fact that I do not have even one aspirin in this house," she said, leaning
back on her couch, glass bong cradled in her hand. "I have no pain." four
patients remaining in the program estimate they have received a total of
584 pounds from the federal government over the years. On the street, that
would be worth more than $500,000. All of the marijuana comes from the
University of Mississippi, where it is grown, harvested and stored. the
marijuana was a small part of the crop the university has been growing
since 1968 for all cannabis research in the U.S. Among the studies are the
pharmaceutical uses for synthetic mimics of pot's psychoactive ingredient,
the four patients are getting pot with about 3 percent THC.  3 percent is
about the range patients have preferred in blind tests. marijuana is then
sent from Mississippi to a tightly controlled North Carolina lab, where
they are rolled into cigarettes. And every month, steel tins with white
labels are sent to Florida and Iowa. Packed inside each is a half-pound of
marijuana rolled into 300 perfectly-wrapped joints.All four have become
crusaders for the marijuana-legalization movement. They're rock stars at

celebrities in the movement. Irv Rosenfeld, a financial adviser in Fort
