After IPO, Facebook will face new profit pressures (02/03/12)
SAN FRANCISCO -- For all the huge numbers in Facebook's IPO papers, a surprisingly small figure stands out: $4.39, the amount the site generated per user last year. It's one of the company's major challenges because the total is paltry compared with competing Internet companies. Google makes more than $30 a year from each registered user. Even struggling Yahoo and AOL make $7 and $10, respectively...

Not all seven members concur, apparently, but, still, you can't take any chances...
New Orleans flair (02/03/12)
While most things float south from Cape Girardeau to end in New Orleans, sometimes a gem travels upstream. Exhibit A: Will Page, a New Orleans artist with a show at the Aartful Rose this month.

It's not the typical purple, green and gold, but it works...
