the crumbs that fall from the table

I met with MorganStanley yesterday morning.

Trump’s tax reform is a cause for celebration there.

They expect the market will continue to rise with Euro markets following behind for at least the next three years, with no immediate end in sight for market investors.

Not one Democrat voted for this trickle down tax bill.

But it worked for Reagan and I wonder if they’ll be sorry.

We'll see.

Can I getchyour numbah? Can I getchyour name?

Sad news out of SouthKorea today, Kim Jong-hyun of the boyband Shinee marks appears to have committed suicide. 

Whatever the cause, he’s confirmed as passed away at only 27.

I have a soft spot for Asian-pop and I’ve posted about it over the years: 

If you can spare a couple of minutes, watch what’s going on in boy-band music on the other side of the world.

It’s cool.

He was one of the smoothest and he will be missed.
