  1. I really liked when you were trying to cut through the earnings PR pink glasses by adding “posts loss” or “post profits” in the headlines.

  2. Patrick – I’m glad to know that someone pays attention to the financial posts here. Sometimes I think I’m doing them for myself, which is ok too.

    Actually, just depends on which of us writes those. I tend to follow that “loss/profit” model, but the other John (who did this post) likes to vary his style.
