#1 – Some Players From UCLA Got Into Some Trouble In China; Some Real Trouble
6 coaches, numerous upper-class managers, athletic department staff, and others were there for the team. Then, they let three very young players loose in China. Guess they have never heard the word, Chaperone. Bet they are sorry now. The players are responsible for such terrible acts, but have you ever been loose in an Asian mall? Reminds me of a movie, Midnight Express.
#2 – In One Of My Seminar Sessions, I Noted That The Salary Of Director Richard Cordray Of The CFPB Is Around $174K
