A deal to sell the Riverside Press-Enterprise to the owner of the Orange County Register may be in jeopardy less than a month after it was announced. On Oct. 10, Aaron Kushner, owner of the Register, said he would buy the Inland Empire's largest newspaper for $27.25 million, adding it to his fast-growing stable of Southern California dailies. But a filing by A.H. Belo Corp., the Press-Enterprise's current owner, casts doubts on the deal. Originally slated to close Oct. 15, the sale has been extended to Nov. 15, according to the Monday filing to the Securities and Exchange Commission.

But while all public offerings come with a degree of uncertainty, the investment vehicle - akin to an exchange-traded fund - involving Bitcoins brings its own unique risks, analysts say.

If you have access to the Internet, or even if you have an e-mail account somewhere else, you can get Securities and Exchange Commission filings electronically. Unfortunately, finding what you need isn't easy and in some cases won't be possible at all. Only about 1,000 major corporations make their filings electronically, and you can only get filings made in this way. (All companies are expected to file electronically within a couple of years.) Also, all the filings are at least 24 hours old.

This post has been updated, as indicated below. Online pundits continued to joust Friday over when Mitt Romney's tenure at Bain Capital ended, reacting to a series of reports (e.g., here , here , here and here ) that Romney remained involved in Bain's investments after he left the company in February 1999. That just goes to show you -- the Washington Post isn't as powerful as it used to be. More important for Romney, it's a reminder that what makes sense on Wall Street doesn't necessarily play well in the reductive world of American politics.
