A bad career decision


In the latest evolution of the nanny society, Maria Bartiromo's recorded voice over the Grand Central Terminal PA system, warns us every few minutes to "mind the gap" and "keep an eye" on our children. Apparently the thinking is that only the Money Honey can bring credibility to the concept of personal and familial safety.

I found these scolds annoying from jump street, but after listening to her 10-15 times a week for the past couple of months, I'll do almost anything to avoid the sound of her voice, including boycotting the otherwise irresistible CNBC programming. [note sarcasm]
