    • Refreshing Honesty About Bank Loans
      I actually appreciate this, from the HSBC AM Global Head of Responsible Investing, Stuart Kirk: “At a big bank like ours, what do people think the average loan length is?” he asked. “It is six years. What happens to the planet in year seven is actually irrelevant to our loan book. For coal, what happens in year seven is actually irrelevant.” That’s honesty. […]

Latenight: Pay no attention to what’s said

Have you been to Joe’s bar?  It’s one of those neighborhood hang outs that’s been around forever.  There’s a long gleaming wooden bar that Joe lovingly tends every night with lemon oil and elbow grease. There aren’t any ferns here.  Just small tables in the dusky shadows where you can meet, sit back and have a nitecap.

This has got to be the longest primary season on record and in spite of what the pundits say, the end is still in some doubt.  There is no finished product as of yet.  And the rumors are flying fast and furious.  All we can do is pay attention to what they do and not what they say.  It’s like seeing through a glass darkly.  Soon all will be revealed.

In the meantime, if we focus our attention on this conundrum to the exclusion of everything else, we will miss the music tonight.  There’s a girl on the stage, singing her heart out to a Duke Ellington tune.

Set ’em up, Joe.  We’re almost through with our fundraiser. The end is coming fast.  Or will it be just the beginning of the end?  Let’s hold close to our friends in whom we put our trust and push through this last final wall.

Update: Darragh only needs about $2500 to put this baby to rest by 12:00pm PST.  If you can lend a hand, run, don’t walk to contribute.  The fundraiser will help pay for our online and on the street outreach in Denver.  Oh, and did I mention that The Daily Show will be visiting the PUMA den on Monday, Aug 25?  You’ll want to check out TDS the rest of the week to catch the spoof.
