President Obama was down in Texas on his “Middle-class jobs and opportunity tour.” Don’t confuse that with his first term. That was the "Middle-class jobs and MISSED opportunity tour."

There is a big movie out today: "The Great Gatsby." Leonardo DiCaprio is a billionaire who can have any woman he wants, yet he never seems happy. I don't know who he plays in the movie.
"The Great Gatsby" is based on F. Scott Fitzgerald's novel. I was surprised when I saw that it's in 3-D. I guess they wanted Fitzgerald's sardonic critique of materialism to come right at you.
They should have jazzed up the movie's title as well. They should have called it something like "2 Fast 2 Gatsby."
The movie has marketing tie-ins everywhere. Brooks Brothers has "Gatsby suits." The Plaza Hotel in New York is opening a "Fitzgerald suite." I think that is lovely. A room named after an alcoholic with tuberculosis who drove his wife mad before dying in his 40s. I want to stay in that room!
