… is that if any particular hedgie pisses you off, for any reason at all, you stand a fair chance of nailing him on securities fraud. That’s why if you’re a hedgie you should keep your head down and not piss too many people off the way Martin Shkreli did with that price hike on that drug. Because all the annoyed SEC had to do was run its eyes lightly over his financial past in order to arrest him, just now, at his New York digs.

    Speaking of people who annoy other people, there are reports that the jerk professor (who I think may be ill) who has been harassing the families of the victims of the Sandy Hook murders has been served with notice that he is going to be fired.

    Even if FAU fails to fire him, it’s far better for that already pretty ridiculous school to be seen to be doing something about the fact that they tenured this person.

    Agreed.
