Nice, if not earth-shattering

My name is in the WSJ today. Second time that I know of. I think I am happier about today's mention than last time.

Would that be because this time it wasn't followed by the words "...was indicted by a grand jury."?

Hahahahah! Nope, not a skier. Don't have the balance for it.

I'm in the list of new CFA charterholders they published today. Last time I was quoted about a study I wrote while I was working at a rating agency.

Actually, I am really Michelle Simmons, the 37 YO Pennsylvanian who went from living on the streets to owning her own home.

Re: Nice, if not earth-shattering

Believe it or not my name was in there 25 years ago. A manufacturing company I worked for filed chapter 11 and they made reference to the CFO(me) in the article.* * *No criminal problems just a company that tried to expand tooooo fast. I learned a lot about chapter 11 but it was also a very trying time.*

Didn't the WSJ reporter think it a bit odd that the compay CFO was "Mr. DOG51"

Hmmmmm. Dog26 changed his name to DOG51 following Chapter 11. Smells fishy to me...
