If the ENTIRE company is 130 employees, don't you think they know that Gerald and Daniel are no longer associated with the firm?
Jun 10th 2009 7:11PM I have it straight from the horse's mouth that Beaudry is just restructuring and this will not significantly impact day-to-day operations or the release of new pieces. Good news for fans of Michael's wonderful work.

Mar 27th 2009 8:45PM Thank you, Kate. I did not know that, and never noticed it on other watches.
Mar 27th 2009 12:30PM An absolutely stunning take on the perpetual calendar complication (although I think I once saw a slightly similar idea from Maurice Lacroix), but shouldn't the Roman 4 be IV, not IIII? What's the story behind that?

Feb 2nd 2009 10:35AM Matt is absolutely correct.
Incidentally, the notion that the wealthy should pay a higher tax rate is equally absurd since they are the least likely to use all of the government's services, except for national defense, that those tax dollars pay for (welfare, social security, public schools, etc) compared to the middle and lower class.
Jan 27th 2009 1:53PM David - do you realize the implications of nationalizing Citi? No offense, but I'm guessing by shareholder you mean a couple thousand shares?
The sickening thing is that instead of focusing on real problems with these firms and their worthless management the equally worthless idiots in Congress, who think a derivative is something you learn in calculus, are grandstanding talking about private jets and lavish office redecorations. When a company just lost $15bn I could care less that its CEO spent $65,000 on a new credenza last year.
The TARP program and the new stimulus plan, that even rational Keynesians would find hard to swallow, will go down in history as one of the greatest government fallacies. I wouldn't trust Barney Frank to flush the toilet after he disposes of some toxic tacos, but you want him managing global banks?

Jan 21st 2009 10:35AM Funny how nobody is appraising Michelle's jewelry with the same scrutiny and disgust as Cindy's and Laura's pieces were at the GOP convention.
