Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.

    Off-topic, but CNBC is now re-running ABC’s “Shark Tank” episodes, starting tomorrow night. What’s next, Spike’s “Bar Rescue”? CNBC certainly has been getting scooped on ‘reality TV’ business programming…

    I liked Jamie Dimon’s quote “We have got to get some of these things behind us so we can do our job. Our job is to serve clients around the world.”

    I believe that the JP Morgan’s client service training manual is entitled: “To Serve Man”
