So louie, I'm sure you know the case of INSLAW .

What become of PROMIS (prosecutor management information system) after IBM rescued it from the bankruptcy court?

Is the death of a journalist, Danny Casolaro, still a cold case?

How do you folks like 'burn after reading'?

What do we learn? what do we learn?

btw, if anyone has a better idea to spent $35 other than making it a donation to wikipedia and make your company do the matching gift thing. The hard part is to change the culture of a company without going through a bankruptcy court, IMHO.

I started Felix Browder page on wikipedia. Recently discovered someone contributed a picture of young Felix Browder. I was excited and spread the good news to a family member. I wasn't expected to be told, '....oh, btw, that's not Felix, that's Bill. Although the bits of information in the article about Earl Browder are generally correct, the emphasis is completely unbalanced and sensational. Whatever spying he did was of little consequence in the big picture....'.

My re-search on Felix Browder's photo archive led me to this Arbitration Barnstar depiction. I thought that was fun...

William Browder's failure under Putins' Russia, posted 5 Jan 2010 at 19:50 UTC by badvogato » (Master)

Last night Sergey Magnitskiy, a 37-year old legal adviser and father of two, died in Matrosskaya Tishina pre-trial detention center in Moscow.

Since 2007, Sergey Magnitskiy was defending the Hermitage Fund and HSBC against serious frauds perpetrated with the involvement of Russian officials. Sergey Magnitskiy gave formal testimonies naming officers of the Interior Ministry and their role in the seizure of Hermitage Fund/HSBC companies. Shortly after his testimony, on 24 November 2008, Sergey Magnitskiy was arrested by the team of the same Interior Ministry officers named in his testimony."

Editorial:La Russophobe

William Browder, CEO of Hermitage Capital, grandson of Earl Browder, general secretary of US communist party.

Have you read the novel 'Shibumi'? The Japanese general asked his adopted son to kill him in the cell so that he won't go on trial as a war criminal...

hmm...I don't know... Switching party may not be a wise thing to do even for a lofty mathematical framework to save the economy of the people. I have read Earl Browder's book 'No way Out'. Its full of reason and logic, definitely more persuasive than any of the speech George W. Bush made during his presidency.
