Re: The Ongoing New Financial Era Thread

Like you, I'm still open to being convinced either way ... but there is No Way on God's Green Earth that this doesn't devolve into an ugly political fight.

Re: The Ongoing New Financial Era Thread

I'm not sure if it's simply a regulatory issue or if there is any legislation that needs to be passed. I suspect it's the latter. It's my understanding that the quarterly reporting requirement was written into the original Congressional legislation that created the SEC back in the 1930s. __________...

Re: 2018 Baseball Season

I usually have a game on in my home office as background noise. The Yankees/Rays games was at 1:00 on the MLB channel. I thought Phillies/Mets might follow. Nope. Doesn't appear to be on anywhere.
