    Walmart wants to be your new banker. Walmart launched Bluebird, an alternative to debit and checking account. Should banks be nervous? Today Walmart announced an alternative to traditional debit and checking accounts in partnership with American Express.

The Bluebird accounts will have no minimum balance requirement and no monthly maintenance, annual or activation fee. Customers can access their money for free using one of 22,000 American Express MoneyPass ATMs, but will be hit with a $2 fee if they are not enrolled in direct...

    I have an old Olympus C2100UZ camera that I only use ocassionally, it is approaching cult status as a landmark of digital camera design. When it finally dies I will lose a friend. It appeared around 2000, with a 10X lens and a super image stabilizer, and one of the fastest, surest AF systems ever. Olympus wanted to get about $1200.00 each for them, never met their sales targets and sold off what they had at a discount. These shots both use an Olympus A-200 TC, for a total of 580 mm equivalent. The C2100 is only 2.1MP, but all...

    PINE RIDGE, S.D. -- In July 1999, President Bill Clinton honored Geraldine Blue Bird for taking in anyone who needed a meal or a place to stay, despite her own poverty. Twenty-eight adults and children lived in her four-room, dilapidated house and in a trailer out back when Clinton's presidential visit made her a symbol of conditions on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, one of the nation's poorest areas. On Wednesday, U.S. District Judge Karen Schreier in Rapid City sentenced Blue Bird, 51, to what might be a life prison sentence -- 34 years -- for being a leader in...

    We Missourians get a new plate coming the summer or fall of 2008. The people of Missouri had a choice to select one of three different designs. The majority of us seems to like the Bluebird (state Bird) sitting on a Hawthorne branch (State flower) Click on Tribune link for story.
  • Hillary in Aviary ("It's the bluebird-I know that" birdbrain + fraud)

    Hillary in Aviary ("It's the bluebird--I know that" birdbrain + fraud)     by Mia T, November 2000, sometime before "the first Tuesday after the first Monday" "Bird of paradise" would have been a brilliant wrong answer for the New-York-state-bird question; in one fell swoop it would have flattered the necessary constituency, rendered hillary's cheating marginally believable and suggested a quick, secure, creative mind. But the obsessively perfectionistic dodo wasn't able to fake even one wrong answer in the Letterman phony "pop quiz," a nostalgic electuary of "Twenty-One" fraud and (Groucho) Marxist left-wing crow. Instead, this documented incompetent with...
