ComeBakken To The Bakken -- This Speaks Volumes About Two US Shale Plays -- July 2, 2018

Regular readers know my thesis regarding the Permian vs the Bakken.

Now this. Back to the Bakken. COP. BR.

You bet your sweet bippy they will be coming back to the Bakken. DAPL-Bakken getting LLS prices.

The Library Page

My two books of "consequence" to be read this week (or in two weeks, if necessary):
  • The Quiet American, Graham Greene, c. 1992 (it looks like a one-nighter)
  • The Vertigo Years: Europe, 1900 - 1914, Philipp Blom, c. 2008 (if I had to name the most consequential decade I think I know least about, it would be this "decade") 

Highly Recommended

On Power, Gene Simmons (of "KISS" fame), c. 2017.

I am thinking of buying five copies of this book; about $12 each at Amazon as gifts; one for my son-in-law, of course. One for me. Hey, my birthday is coming up. State sales tax; free shipping. At the local store, $16 before sales tax. No-brainer.

This is a small -- very small book -- both footprint and thickness. It's footprint is about the size of a postcard, maybe 3" by 6." It is slightly thicker than an iPhone, perhaps.

It can probably be read in one afternoon on the beach.

But it's awesome. And if you are a Gene Simmons fan, it's a must-have.

Simmons says the classical power pantheon holds three figures: Niccolo Machiavelli; Napoleon Bonaparte; and, Winston Churchill.

His list of  modern power players:
  • Oprah Winfrey, the queen
  • Donald Trump, the deal-maker
  • Elon Musk, the thrill-seeker
  • Dave Grohl, the rock star
  • Michael Jordan, the legend
  • Stan Lee, the creator
  • Warren Buffett, the soothsayer
  • Frank Underwood, the manipulator
Okay, one of those eight was not on Gene Simmons' list of seven. I'll leave it up to the reader to guess which one is not on the list.

For Wednesday,
