    I think the breach was using $100 bills to light up customers’ cigars while the EU-protocol calls for €500 bills in these situations. Unfortunate he had to go, but these are the rules.

    I didn’t even know Goldman took positions in cable channels. I love Always Sunny and The League…

    I would have left too. It was probably hard duty selling the FX after the ’09 redesign. Infiniti simply got too aggressive with the styling. There are much better options in that segment, like the Lexus RX, BMW X5, and my personal fav the Cadillac SRX.

    This kind of stuff happens at UBS all the time. It’s no big deal.

    Kevin, how many times do we have to review this, you are supposed to alert Mr. Soros BEFORE you put on a trade, not after.
