People Castigating People, II

We hesitate to even mention ... you know, those two idiots ... again, but we have to applaud Dan Klores, Jennifer Affleck's publicist, for his sheer chutzpah in dealing with the whole engineered controversy surrounding her and B-Lo. Consider his remark made to ABC News:

"She's not doing great. She's doing good. She's figuring it out," said (Mr) Klores, the actress-singer's New York publicist. "She's 33 years old. Leave her alone."

(blink for a moment)

Oh. Well. We here at The Rant must offer our sincere apologies. Here we were, thinking that Jen, at the tender age of 33, would be capable of dealing with issues and problems like an actual thinking adult. Silly us! Clearly we were misinformed of this fact.

Unfortunately, this gives us a rather uncomfortable dilemma. Since we deal with issues that pertain to actual thinking adults here on The Rant, we are inclined never to mention these two incorrigibles again. On the other hand, we gain a great deal of enjoyment castigating these two individuals for their crimes against culture-in-general.

Gad. Well, it will give us something to wrestle with during our down time, when we are not worrying about national economic policy.

Come on.

She's 33.

The man next to Maria Bartiromo on your new banner is a rare (almost unique) investment maven who actually actually put the small investor's interests first. Equally rare he actually kept his own renumeration quite modest especially considering he is an actual living legend in the world of finance.

My wife and I had the pleasure of meeting Jack at a small hotel in Bermuda where we all were staying about three years ago. Besides having great intergrity and smarts he was a very down to earth and warm human being.

Well enough hints. He is retired from his principal work for several years now but you can still catch his commentary occasionally around market close time on CNBC.
