Was a bit a bit crazed yesterday with the Madoff Montauk US Marshal video and I recorded two new podcasts for today and tomorrow (Marketing Guru, Fed Economist) so I didn’t get a chance to blog.
Here are a few things that caught my eye as something I would have expanded on in Matrix and are worth reading, especially the last two on a single regulator.
