Our galloping gourmands all gained some girth this week in a free-market feast. In first, 30-year T-bond is $88 heavier after yet another week of binging on profits. OTC and Blue Chip, in second and third, bellied up to a beefy bull market buffet. They helped themselves to $130 and $180, respectively. The saver steeds savored dividends this week as well. EE bonds, Money Market and 90-day CD, in fourth, fifth and sixth, found their respective gains of $11, $10 and $8 appetizing, but they're going back for seconds. Lipper Mutual, in seventh after a hefty $170 rise, ate well but skipped dessert - he finally made it into the black, and that was sweet enough. The metal mounts also munched on some money, with Gold and Silver packing away profits of $19 and $269. They remain in eighth and ninth, respectively. Even skinny Lipper International ate like a horse this week. He remains in tenth, but his $171 profit made his wallet a little fatter.
