Goldman Sachs chief executive (and noted party DJ) David Solomon will no longer perform at high-profile events, picking Wall Street over South Beach, a representative from the second-largest investment bank confirmed to CNN.

“David decided to stop publicly DJing more than a year ago because of the outside attention to it,” said Goldman spokesman Tony Fratto.

More to the point, he’s an idiot. But a tenured one, apparently.

The Mirage became the first Strip property to be run by a Native American tribe in 2022, after Hard Rock International, which is owned by the Seminole Tribe of Florida, purchased it from MGM Resorts in a cash deal worth nearly $1.1 billion.

Hard Rock said at the time that the property would remain open and operate under the Mirage brand for several years while it finalized renovation plans.

The Mirage is accepting no bookings for after July 14 and said any reservations past that date will be canceled and refunded.

“Hard cases make bad law” - an apt law school slogan. The congresscritters always seize upon emotional things like the unscrupulous payday loan business to shoehorn bad law into effect. This one goes even farther.

It allows an even easier mechanism for congress (sic) to create unaccountable agencies - as if creating unaccountable central power were not easy enough. The bureau only levies “civil” penalties. Does anyone doubt they will be quantitatively punitive, in reality? I recently saw footage of a tsunami washing ashore. It almost seemed slow motion, yet its power, completely overwhelming of all in its path. My first association to the images was the power of our federal government.

The big worry is that the key aspect of the deal appears to be that they let the bureaucracy (or new appointees) run things (so that the beautiful people don’t suffer the indignity of seeing Wilders or other ruffians in high office).

The CT number is per capita which is not insane

The strange thing is if you remove the New Haven cluster, it becomes more miniscule than you would have expected.

Speculation that the New Haven cluster is a Yale student creating AI-generated performers:

What kind of entity is Bedbible? Something tells me the scriptural focus may be very shallow with this one…

Is it Bedbible as in “bed Bible”? Or a mispelling of an invented word like beddible ?

Update: mystery solved, definitely not the Holy Book on the night stand variety :roll_eyes:
