Super late start this morning, there was a rager over at the Delta Chi house last night and I just woke up with the boss’s daughter. Just kidding, meetings and conference calls.
I see the Moodys ratings threat had very little impact in Equityland so far, all major indexes flat-lining for the most part. The sense among traders and strategist types that I talk to is that everyone knows a deal will get done eventually so a lot of this is just theater. I don’t know, talk to me on August 2nd, I guess.
Anyway, here’s some crazy thing I have posted at the Wall Street Journal this morning:
Situation – I’m not going to sugarcoat this, Mike, here’s the situation: As a 46-year-old man playing a 25-year-old on TV, your career prospects aren’t particularly bright. Only one other actor has been able to pull this off, Luke Perry, who was cast as a high schooler on Beverly Hills 90210 at the age of 41. But Luke wasn’t smart with his money, that’s why you see him wrestling with electric eels in original movies on the SciFi Channel at 3 in the morning. I advise you to put your lottery winnings from being on the show into an irrevocable trust that pays you a stipend each month. You’ll get access to the principle in the event of your 50th birthday or a life-threatening piercing accident, whichever happens first.
Be back shortly, hang in there…
