Brian Patrick Cork is living the Authentic Life

Yet another delicious irony



markcubanphotoFederal regulators on Monday charged Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban (“When I die, I want to come back as me”) with insider trading for allegedly using confidential information on a stock sale to avoid more than $750,000 in losses.

“It is fundamentally unfair for someone to use access to nonpublic information to improperly gain an edge on the market,” Scott Friestad, the SEC’s deputy enforcement director, said in a statement.

To wit…

The agency is alleging that Cuban acted with “scienter,” a legal term indicating knowledge of wrongdoing.

Isn’t that an example of “the pot calling the kettle black”?

Nobody regulates the regulators. /1

Are you familiar with the phrase “Chimpanzees with shotguns”?

Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

What’s All This About?

"What am I looking at?", you might wonder.

Lots of stuff.

Meanwhile, here, I discuss events, people and things in our world - and, my (hardly simplistic, albeit inarticulate) views around them.

You'll also learn things about, well, things, like people you need to know about, and information about companies you can't find anywhere else.

So, while I harangue the public in my not so gentle way, you will discover that I am fascinated by all things arcane, curious about those whom appear religious, love music, dabble in politics, loathe the media, value education, still think I am an athlete, and might offer a recipe.

All the while, striving mightily, and daily, to remain a prudent and optimistic gentleman - and, authentic.
