Ugh, are we talking about Elon AGAIN? Well, yeah, but he's running so spectacularly wild, it reminds us of the joke about a horse wreaking havoc in a hospital. There's no protocol, so I guess we're all just watching. Blue checks backfired again with the fake Eli Lilly account Tweeting "Insulin is free," shining a big light on two things: That the pay-to-be-verified-on-Twitter plan is trash and, most importantly, that price gouging insulin to the tune of 1,200 percent is ethically barren. Next on deck is a big nasty: The Wall Street Journal reports that a U.S. taxpayer is facing a fine of $2.72 million for failing to submit a Report of Foreign Bank and Financial Accounts--also known as FBAR. The stinger? The taxpayer in question didn't even OWE any taxes on those assets; this is literally just a penalty. Good luck, fella. Meanwhile, pay transparency laws are going into effect in NYC to help narrow the income gap across gender and ethnic lines. All together now: Equal work, equal pay! A solid win for decreasing income disparity. We also cover a crypto update, echoes of Enron at FTXA, and Meta/Facebook is about to lay off 10,000 employees.
