Re: Random Thoughts Again

Each of the 50 states has its own unique high point, from the 14,505-foot Mount Whitney in California to Delaware’s roadside Ebright Azimuth (442 feet)

Yet another reason to be embarassed for Delaware. 442 feet? It's like they are not even trying.

Re: The Ongoing New Financial Era Thread

That's consistent with my feelings on the topic. Venture capitalists are in a position to research a firm before they invest. And, investors in general have a lot of protections and recourse. Customers have far fewer protections and recourse. And, when it comes to medical, it gets really hairy. Your...

Re: The Ongoing New Financial Era Thread

If they go for the death penalty and I'm on the jury, they will likely get it. The focus on this woman and her company has been mostly on the investor fraud with some small amount of attention to the doctors and patients who were defrauded because they used here bullshit tests. But, what about the p...

Re: The Ongoing New Financial Era Thread

I didn't either but I'm not shocked. Nor am I upset. We throw poor people in jail for years for selling dime bags of weed. White collar criminals we let off with a slap on the wrist.

Her mistake was not being a large financial institution that donates shit tons of money to political candidates.

Re: The Ongoing New Financial Era Thread

This wasn't really news, though. You knew this was coming. She had been outed as a fraud some time ago and the SEC and DOJ have been digging into her for a while. It was a matter of time before this happened.

Re: 2018 Baseball Season

I'm not sure if this will link right but here are the standings at the AS break last year. From that, you already have a few teams really contending. I just don't get how the attendance can be a big drop off from last year as it's a very similar situation. Shore - I'm with you. I wouldn't turn down ...

Re: 2018 Baseball Season

I think it's too early to really comment on attendance. The spring was freaking brutal. You had bitter cold, ran, sleet and snow for most of April. Teams played through some crappy weather but fans didn't pay to sit through it. On top of that, a lot of school years in the northeast - the sweet spot ...

Re: These are a few more of my favorite peeves

I don't thinkt he face value of tickets is too much. I think the problem is the availability. It is almost impossible to just buy a concert ticket at face value anymore unless you have some arrangement. Most big bands now have a "fan club" that you have to pay money for. One of the perks i...
