I have never read this book or seen the movie so I am sorry if the title is offensive. I’m feeling safe however since the cover of the book in my library growing up touted it as “the greatest war novel of all time”, one of the films was made in 1930, and the remake in the 70’s featured John-Boy Walton. Anyway, the title seems fitting for today’s commentary because 1. it’s not snowing any more, and 2. the rate hike yesterday seems to have gone largely unnoticed by the equity and debt markets. Like shooting a grizzly bear with a sling shot, the idea was terrifying and caused much debate as to the consequences, but the end result has been absolutely nothing. So look out your window and enjoy this picturesque day.
