American companies that have gotten in bed with the CCP deserve what they get. However, the US government should be much more diligent about who it lets into the country, especially to work or go to school.

If there is any silver lining to the Wuhan flu epidemic, it may be that it ends the open office plan.

Ran across this and thought it was pretty funny. No tie in to modeling or the law or anything else, just a funny story.

Boeing

I think Boeing is an amazingly well-run company.  I think their decision not to compete with the A380 and instead develop the 787 was strategic genius.  However, I doubt the wisdom of developing a supersonic business jet.  I am just not sure the market is big enough to justify the investment.

Movie review: Suicide Squad (2016)

I’d wanted to see this in the theatre.  Unfortunately with two small kids, that just wasn’t possible, and boy am I glad it wasn’t.  I’d be so pissed if I’d paid $12 for a ticket to see this unholy mess.  In fact I’m mad that I paid $3.99 for the DVD at Walmart.  This movie isn’t just so-so.  It is actively bad. It is incoherent.  This was a big budget movie and I just don’t understand how you can spend this kind of money making a movie and coming out with something that doesn’t even make sense.  Avoid at all costs.
