Confident in his ability to ride 9/11 all the way to the White House, Rudy Giuliani will sell the investment banking wing of his consulting business, Giuliani Capital Partners, to Macquarie Group, the latter said today. The deal could reportedly be for up to $100 million analysts said, and was brokered to prevent clients’ activities from being used against Don Juan in a presidential race. The sale may be have been a bit rash, however, given that Giuliani’s son, Andrew, a sophomore at Duke, went public over the weekend with the fact that he will not be participating in his father’s campaign because a. he hates his stepmother, Judy Nathan and b. “his devotion to becoming a profession golfer within three years allows no time for distraction.” Those are some insurmountable odds to overcome right there. (Though, if you want to really get into it, we checked out Andy’s stats for the Blue Devils and junior is currently clocking in as the weakest link on the team, with a 77 average and an all-time best finish of 68th place. As our resident Golf and Lifestyle Chair, Trip Paulson put it, “Maybe joining the old man on the campaign wouldn’t be such a bad idea. He probably has a better chance of coming out a winner. Chelsea has better reason to forgo her mom’s campaign for a shot at that synchronized swimming gold medal in ’08 she’s been gunning for all these years.”)**

Thirty-eight percent of Level I takers and forty-two percent of Level II'ers have reason to feel pretty good about your lives this morning. Your studying was worth it, your plans are right on track, the promise land is so close you can taste it. The rest of you are likely feeling less good. Your (hours and days and weeks and months) of studying did not end up being worth it, you're right back where you started, and the path to the quote ultimate honor unquote--the land of milk and honey and stacks of CFA exams in need of grading, as high as the eye can see-- seems littered with insurmountable obstacles. Your family and friends and colleagues told you they never wanted to hear those three little letters in that sequence again but if you need to vent, we're listening. You're safe here.
