It would almost appear that Netflix was holding their ‘Pandemic’ series for an outbreak. We have one now – hopefully not as virulent as it appears and with a lower mortality rate than common flu. Mercenary move by Netflix.
Speaking of mercenaries, it seems that it wasn’t just me who saw that the opportunities for Trump and his gang to use the bully pulpit to make themselves richer in the stock market were ripe for the picking. Obviously the Trumps saw it – and now Vanity Fair and Salon have done some solid investigative reporting into just how much this administration’s corruption is making the Trump’s wealthier..
On another mercenary front, the tragic death of Kobe Bryant this morning was not wasted news on the vendors at the flea market. I walked through this morning and within minutes saw vendors tearing through their nearly worthless 1990s basketball cards looking for anything Kobe. You can’t blame them, since rookie cards quickly short up to $60, $6000, and even one card selling for $60,000 this morning on ebay.
