CNBC no longer runs ads touting "In Cramer We Trust." That is a very small step in the right direction. It has a long way to go.
Pastrami and wisdom. That was my first in-person encounter with Dr. Wayne Dyer. In April 2006, I had interviewed him by phone for my New York Times' column "Long Island at Worship" and our conversation had wandered into open spiritual water.
