What's In A Name?

Cluing RICK usually means calling on Springfield, Moranis, Derringer, Pitino or Casablanca's Blaine. But the most passionate "Rick" reports from the floor of the Chicago Board of Trade. If RANT, a crossword regular, needs any clarification--leave it to CNBC's Rick Santelli to show us exactly how it's done.

Today Santelli appealed to Congress to "Stop spending!!!" . . . except, of course, when it comes to the most cost-effective form of daily entertainment--the crossword puzzle. Financial experts agree that unlimited cruciverbal spending stimulates the mind and the economy.

If there's any question as to whether Rick was born to rant, consider these four consecutive letters in his name. It was written in the stars . . .

R-I-C-K   S-A-N-T-E-L-L-I
