The Wire was right

Have you ever watched the Wire? In season one, there’s a scene where Lester’s telling Prez how to follow the paper trail of secretive companies and he says that even when people are trying to hide their tracks, they always use the same lawyers. Well, Lester was right. And you know what, it doesn’t surprise me. I always liked him, maybe even better than Omar.

  1. Lester was my favorite character on the wire. He even gets the hot girl.

  2. Vigilant Futures and CEP News both came into existance at around the same time. At one point they even had the same address.

    I'll try and find a URL for you my little friend.

  3. Forget wires 🙂 Looks like Vigilant Futures maybe on the ropes! I am no expert but is it legal for them to have a media organization? (Not accusing, just asking)

    I've gotta start watching The Wire!

  4. merrill backs bloomberg, hedgies back reuters, etc, etc, etc,
    *sigh* all too common

  5. Yeah but those are declared interests, Thomson-Reuters is publicly listed…not sure in this case…although thing you're right…all too common!!!

  6. Illinois Secretary of State Website database search for registered LLC's.

    NTKN and Allston Trading have the same address for the Principal Office

    CHICAGO, IL 60605

    Could be something, could be nothing.

    Another interesting address. The listed Manager in Need to Know News is one John Harada, the listed address for this manager is:

    200 W. MADISON STE 700, CHICAGO, IL – 60606

    Principal Office street Address for Jed Capital LLC is:

    200 W MADISON ST STE 700
    CHICAGO, IL 60606

    Could be nothing, could be something

    Also, search JED and NTKN again on the same website, they share the same Agent as well:


    This really could be nothing as I think the State of Il allows agents to serice multiple clients.
