As opposed to Goldman Sachs, the biggest criminals in the USA? Frankly, the entire senior executive staff at G-S should take thirteen steps up, and one short one down.

I tried to process this post and found myself not caring about the woes of one more overextended famous person who’s going to be just fine whatever happens with this deal. I mean, Paul McCartney still doesn’t own the rights to “Yesterday,” does he? You’ve got to blog about what makes you passionate, of course, but this stuff is just beyond me.

http://www.forbes.com/feeds/ap/2009/08/1 9/business-specialized-consumer-services -us-brinker-international-russia_6793547 .html

I’m sure we need to protect these business people from any untoward deals they sign too, right?

Business woman does bad deal for herself… let’s help the little lady? Sorry Annie, you wanna be big businesswoman, come dressed to play.

I wonder if she can read the loan doucments? If she’s illiterate, I wonder why she didn’t hire an attorney to look over the loan docs?

I guess she’s just another schmuck, not unlike the 20 million people who were “talked into” taking out subprime mortgages they knew they could never afford to repay.

Funny how all the article mention “selling” her photo archives… No mention of “licensing” the images (where she would retain copyright).

Can you say, flooding the market?

“…her habit of postponing their scheduled calls. “Our record was sixteen months,”

And you wonder why dead artists are worth more than live ones?
