My prediction about fraud

Over a year ago, I predicted that as the financial worm is turning, based on this. from shock to fraud…. eventually some of the big players in the financial debacle in the U.S. would be going to court (and perhaps jail). Reading this, it looks like it is finally starting to happen, at least for Goldman Sachs.  It looks like the SEC has a pretty good case against Goldman. It will be interesting, to say the least, to see it played out.

Juilet Capulet is following you on twitter, or how the RSC is tweeting the Bard

Such Tweet Sorrow tells of how the Royal Shakespeare Company is using Twitter in an innovative way to tell the story of Romeo and Juliet. I don’t know if it will convey the story in the same way, but I think more to the point, it introduces one of the great works of Shakespeare in an appealing way to those who may not know it. I am always supportive of such approaches, since I learned to love opera from watch Bugs Bunny sing parts of the Marriage of Figaro many many years ago. If others come to love Shakespeare through this, then hats off to the RSC.
