Finally A Really Important Waldman

I have noticed that, while I am the only blogging Waldmann of whom I am aware, there are at least 3 blogging Waldman's more prominent than me. Also Michael Waldman is a definitely more prominent economist and Amy Waldman can singTilted edge suggested that my problem might be the spellling of my name and that I consider changing it to Waldmann.

Now I discover a really important Waldman.

In a story on the intersection of the K-Street Project and the mafia. Schmidt and Cillizza (who between the two of them have quite a few more excess consonants between them than I do) report that Jack Abramoff (not Abramof, Abramoff) had two (not one two) partners in his effort to gain control of the Sun Cruz nautical casino company.

"Ney's involvement with the cruise line took place in 2000, when Abramoff and partners Kidan and Ben Waldman were in difficult negotiations to buy SunCruz Casinos from Fort Lauderdale businessman Konstantinos "Gus" Boulis."

Oh and by the way Tilted, I'm now thinking of changing my name to Waldmannn.
