Sounds Like Last "Ditch" Effort To Stop DAPL -- March 20, 2017

Over at KSL:
The company building the Dakota Access pipeline said Monday that the project remains on track to start moving oil this week despite recent "coordinated physical attacks" along the line.
The brief court filing late Monday from Dallas-based Energy Transfer Partners didn't detail the attacks, but said they "pose threats to life, physical safety and the environment."
The filing cited those threats for redacting much of the rest of the 2½-page report, but ended: "These coordinated attacks will not stop line-fill operations. With that in mind, the company now believes that oil may flow sometime this week."
A spokeswoman for the company declined to elaborate on the types of attacks. A spokesman for the Morton County sheriff's office, the center of months of sometimes violent conflicts between protesters and law enforcement, didn't immediately respond to an email.
Going to social media sites suggest that gun shots were fired at the workers. Those reports were from several days ago. One assumes law enforcement has this under control by now. 

The Apple Page

On a "blah" day for the market, down a bit, not much excitement. One exception: Apple shares had a great day. I believe Apple hit a new all-time record high closing. With a market cap of $742 billion, it's the most valuable company publicly traded in the US. It well exceeds Alphabet (Google) and Facebook. I don't even look at Exxon Mobil any more.  Walmart? I think market cap for Apple is about 3x Walmart.

And tomorrow? This should be interesting:
