The Hidden Depths of the Vader Clan
Sorry to come back to the land of the living with such a short and whimsical post, but I hope that a shift to a slightly less punishing schedule will allow me to be a little more consistent in the future. If it's any consolation I haven't done much commenting anywhere, except a few at Market Movers, where I was mostly getting exercised about bond insurers.

"Robert Vader of Fair Grove, Mo., buys scores of bags of fluffy pine shavings a month for his business, called Vader's Bunnies and Pets"
Would you buy a bunny from a man called Vader? I couldn't help but worrying that my bunny would be encouraging me to give into my anger the whole time, and destroying Alderaan (yes, I know, it was Grand Moff Tarkin, but, well, you know). So here's a run down of the Vader clan:
Darth: Sith lord. Dark side practitioner. Destroyer of worlds
Robert: Sells bunnies
