    RIP Rene Rivikin

    On the news about a couple of minutes ago, apparently banned Australian stock broker Rene Rivikin has taken his own life after suffering from depression.

    Personally I felt he got a good deal when he got sent to prison, in prison on weekends, and at home during the week. I suppose his magazine won't be around now (assuming it still is).
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...

    RIP Fardin Qayyumi, a true legend of CW

    Not with his jail term!
    'Copperfield,' said Mr. Micawber, 'farewell! Every happiness and prosperity! If, in the progress of revolving years, I could persuade myself that my blighted destiny had been a warning to you, I should feel that I had not occupied another man's place in existence altogether in vain.

    The guy was no Nick Leeson. Otherwise he could have got a job in football.

    Not quite. Galway United are an extremyly small club side in the Republic with very limited finances.

    Now if it was a bunch of wan.... I mean Merchant Bankers like Manchester United I'd be inclined to agree - but Leeson's definitely done his 'bird' and I don't think anyone ever suggested he was corrupt - just got out of his (and everyone else's) depth..
