What an oddly serene, yet uncomfortable week coming up.
Here we were, on Good Friday, on the precipice of another year in which lunar coincidence allows Passover and Easter to coincide.
For many, serenity comes from family time, celebration and sometimes the re-inforcement of faith, culture and heritage.
In honor of the holiness of Good Friday, even capitalists will put away their arms and take the day off from their all consuming efforts. After all, the Prince of Peace wasn't exactly a fan of the 1%, so what better way to honor the message of peace than to take a day off from advancing your personal caches of wealth?
I may not recall much from my college Theology class days, but I'm fairly certain that among the things that was not discussed at that Last Supper Seder was hedging strategies for the coming week.
Even those Jewish people without much in the way of belief will retell the story of the Exodus from Egypt in whatever metaphors are appropriate for their own friends and family. Again, hedging strategies are not likely to play a role in the re-telling of the story.
But still, what a perfect day to release the employment numbers.
Our currency may say "In God We Trust," but report releases rest for no deity.
