Looming spectre...

Google, the oddest of stocks on the market, is contemplating expanding into online payments, which would put it in direct competition with Ebay (via Paypal). Of course, this would have a very negative effect on Ebay's stock (and in some ways, maybe the company), which is good for nobody hoping to pawn off their junk to purveyors of...junk.

The Christian Science Monitor has a good article (via Yahoo) about the problems with connecting Social Security to the stock market. A good read, and fairly pertainent, considering the political climate right now.
