Facebook Goes Public

Facebook's long-awaited IPO sets sail, with co-founder Mark Zuckerberg updating his page with "Listed a company on NASDAQ".  Meanwhile, the revelation that billionaire TD Ameritrade founder Joe Ricketts was contemplating a $10 million negative ad campaign against President Obama, caused him to stop contemplating it. The President and seven of his fellow world leaders, aka the G8, headed to the country place, aka Camp David, for the weekend. And JP Morgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon took one for the team, aka the banking industry.
