Re: New British Series Dynamo Magician Impossible.

I feel obligated to point out some facts here. Hotfile is a file storage site, just like many others such as Microsoft SkyDrive, because of that some (not all) users share illegal files. Neither Hotfile nor Microsoft has the ability to check every file uploaded for permissions and relies on takedown...

I wasn't arguing to re-post the link, I just thought that the "illegal Download site" statement was a bit broad.

Re: The President of the Academy of Magical Arts RESIGNS

Please note the word other, as I said the news is full of celebs being ripped off by their advisors.

Celebs by virtue of their usual lack of general business expertise and large cash flow are ripe for the dishonest advisor to prey on. Doctors are another group that are easily fleeced.

I have done more than one million dollar business deal with no contracts,just a handshake.

To me integrity counts for everything as an example, I personally don't care if a man cheats on his wife, but if he does he is also likely to be dishonest in business.

Re: Magic Castle Larsen Legacy

The AMA is in fact a California not for profit mutual benefit corporation.
As such under Ca law "all accounting books and records" are available for inspection by any member. There is no mention of allowing for any names or other items to be redacted prior to inspection.

You didn't look close enough, he was told by a doctor who was there to go straight home, he left before the banquet and was checked into the hospital the next day.

When I talked to him there I thought he looked terrible.
