Herb Caen was a columnist for the San Francisco Chronicle for 53 years ending in 1991. He sometimes offered what he called my "thoughts while shaving," which introduced a potpourri of random ideas he considered to be column-worthy.
Today I'll offer an entire column of my own thoughts while shaving as they relate to what is happening in the stock market and the economy in general. And by the way, this August will mark the end of the 16th year that I have been serving as your weekly financial gossip provider. I'm closing in on Herb's record.
