No shit, Sherlock !



...Maintaining a focused strategy also removes the layers of instability that typically arise when a company is in a conflicted position with its clients. It was fascinating to watch the congressional hearings as senior executives of big financial firms struggled to explain how they could act as both a market maker—a firm that sits in the middle to match buyers with sellers for the widest possible spread between bid and ask prices—and a fiduciary, a client’s advocate and representative. How does that work? At what point is a firm your friend and advisor, and at what point do you have to be on your guard? Do some people in the firm function as your advocate while others function to extract the best deal possible for the company? All sorts of rules, regulations, and internal controls exist to prevent such conflicts and abuses. But ultimately, these may become compromised when firms strive to harness synergies between the different businesses...

No worries. A little horseback riding accident. First time I've ridden this horse and I didn't know his ways... he caught me off guard is all.

Hope you are well!

I was watching a bit of The Hustler with Paul Newman before, and I saw quite a bit of myself in Fast Eddie. I think I need to change those bits of myself...

I am tempted to go to the bar to watch the UFC main card tonight. I just don't know which of two bars to go to if either of them are showing it (they are 20 minutes from each other and me)...

Sometimes, there's so much noise around us. I wish she had the peace and quiet she needs, to recharge her batteries.

I hate telephone trees.

I've just wasted 20 minutes listening to all the alternatives to navigate my way through to get the answer I wanted.

All I wanted to do was PAY SOME TAX!!!

Two months and counting...




From 13.96° N. 61.02° W. to 12.29° N. 61.28° W are ninety of the most delicious nautical miles known to man. I can already feel the rhythm of the ocean rollers, see the flying fish, feel the heel of the vessel and 25 lovely tradewind knots on a broad reach.

So, I may be going to a casino in Battle Creek, Michigan this weekend. I've never gone to a casino, so I'm apprehensive about going. I like trying new things, but at the same time hate it too.

Leave your wallet at home. The games are rigged.

Yeah, I'm only taking "X" number of dollars, as well as back-up friends, so I don't go crazy.

I haven't looked at any porn today, or even thought of masturbating until now (almost 7pm, I have been up for 12 hours).
