    So who "shorted" Papa Johns stock yesterday?

    Papa John's Founder Used N-Word On Conference Call

    John Schnatter—the founder, chairman and public face of pizza chain Papa John’s—used the N-word on a conference call in May. Schnatter confirmed the incident in an emailed statement to Forbes on Wednesday.

    The call was arranged between Papa John’s executives and marketing agency Laundry Service. It was designed as a role-playing exercise for Schnatter in an effort to prevent future public-relations snafus. Schnatter caused an uproar in November 2017 when he waded into the debate over national anthem protests in the NFL and partly blamed the league for slowing sales at Papa John’s.

    On the May call, Schnatter was asked how he would distance himself from racist groups online. He responded by downplaying the significance of his NFL statement. “Colonel Sanders called blacks n-----s,” Schnatter said, before complaining that Sanders never faced public backlash.

    Schnatter also reflected on his early life in Indiana, where, he said, people used to drag African-Americans from trucks until they died. He apparently intended for the remarks to convey his antipathy to racism, but multiple individuals on the call found them to be offensive, a source familiar with the matter said. After learning about the incident, Laundry Service owner Casey Wasserman moved to terminate the company’s contract with Papa John’s.

    Actually the more interesting question would be: Who in the Administration shorted the S&P 500 last night prior to the new tariff announcement? (Given the swamp these folks seem to thrive in, it is a valid question.)

    Why exactly is this a "more interesting" question? Just because something feeds into your personal biases doesn't mean anyone else is going to find it captivating.

    Actually, you are the one that seems to thrive in the swamp. How will you survive when it is drained?
