    Honorary ERISA Hottie: Jim Telfer

    As we mentioned when announcing the nominees, we received many more ERISA hotties than we were able to include in our contest (which ends tomorrow).

    Liza With a “Z” — and a “VD,” Too

    We’ve always had a great deal of affection for boozy chanteuse Liza Minnelli. Why? Check out this surprisingly eloquent squib from her Wikipedia bio: Minnelli’s work in Cabaret molded her popular image, from the black helmet of hair and extravagant eyelashes that have remained her visual trademark to the perception among many that she shares […]

Diddy,” and, most recently, “Diddy.” But on the other side of the pond, Sean Combs will have to find another nonsensical name to call himself. From the BBC: Rap star Sean […]

    Non-Sequiturs: 09.08.06

    * Larry Sonsini reminds us of why we should use the phone, and NOT email, if we’re going to do something sketchy. Also, his spelling and typing skills aren’t perfect.
