The [Monday] Papers

It's happening - this Friday!

You don't need to be invited to attend! It just means you're not a Facebook friend of me or the site, and/or not on any of my other contact lists. You are invited! You are also encouraged to RSVP directly to me so we can get the best sense possible of how many folks to expect. (We have several different RSVP mechanisms, so the number of attendees you see on the Facebook page or EventBrite are drastically underreported! It's gonna be . . . possibly big. You won't want to miss it!)

Featuring: Take Your Photo With Adam West. (We've arranged it.)

And: The Blue Ribbon Glee Club will perform a couple of choice selections.

Also: Door prizes!

Finally: Bring a map. Of anything.

Self-Regulation Protects The Wolves Of Wall Street
"The dozen FINRA flags examined by Reuters include regulatory sanctions for misconduct, employment terminations after allegations of misconduct and payments by firms to settle customer complaints. They also include brokers' personal financial troubles, such as bankruptcies or liens for nonpayment of debts.

"Last year, a FINRA official told Reuters, the regulator identified 90 firms as posing the highest risk to investors and flagged them internally for higher scrutiny. But FINRA declined to name the firms publicly or to release statistics showing the concentration of brokers with a history of FINRA flags within each firm."

The History Channel Is Finally Telling The Stunning Secret Story Of The War On Drugs.

My biggest complaint about the Gary Webb fiasco is that his editors worked on the story and eagerly signed off on it, only to escape their own accountability while Webb was hung out to dry.
