The Thrill of Victory…
and the agony of defeat. Both of these can be experienced at Perl Mortgage’s 7th Annual Mini-Golf Tournament! This will be on Friday (December 4th) from 6:00 AM until 5:00 PM at our office on 2936 W Belmont. Six holes, prizes, pizza, and I even cleaned my desk for the first time in a year – so please come by and check it out! All Jameson employees get VIP treatment, open tee times, caddies, and golf carts (this is just me giving piggy back rides). Feel free to bring family, clients, friends, or enemies. Should be a good time.
The House Financial Services Committee voted 43-26 in favor of directing the Government Accountability Office to expand its audits of the Fed to include decisions about interest rates. Former Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan said it would be, “a major loss to the country if the Fed were incapable of running an independent monetary policy.” What do I think? I graduated from the University of Kansas with a major in speech communications and a minor in drama. If I were the Fed Chief, I would welcome the intrusion with open arms. Fed Chief Ben Bernanke graduated summa cum laude from Harvard Business School. I think they should leave him alone and let the dude do his work. The House also voted 41-28 to have pizza delivered for lunch instead of Chinese food.

Timeout for Trivia:
Congrats goes out to those of you who correctly guessed Sir Paul McCartney as the answer to the November 18th trivia. Let’s see how good you are guessing today’s Who Am I? question. Good luck: “I turn 49 tomorrow. Born and raised in Chicago, I was always drawn to Hollywood and eventually moved there. I made a big splash in the 80s making a bunch of successful movies with big-name costars like Steve Martin, Michael Douglas, and Tom Hanks. As a child I lost the tip of my finger in an accident (I sometimes wear a prosthetic fingertip in movies), but I can see just fine. I only play the part as a one-eyed assassin.”
