hnichdsdf;.jpgBest Lede Of The Day: From this piece about one of our favorite men with an alleged in-house sex and drug lair: “The last two years haven’t been easy for Broadcom billionaire Henry T. Nicholas III. He split up with his wife. He was accused of manipulating stock options at Broadcom Corp., the Irvine microchip company he co-founded. And federal prosecutors filed criminal charges against him, saying he supplied Broadcom clients with drugs and prostitutes. On Monday, however, Nicholas received some good news: He might be getting his private jet back.” See? There’s justice in the world.

broadcom.jpgBest Paragraph Of The Day Award: Goes to E. Scott Reckard and Kim Christensen, who write about troubled former Broadcom Corp. chief executive/alleged fetishist Henry T. Nicholas III:

But in a marathon interview that began Tuesday evening and stretched to 3 a.m. Wednesday, Nicholas talked enthusiastically about his eclectic interests — including his efforts to develop military vehicles that can withstand rocket-propelled grenades, his work to keep California’s three-strikes law intact, his attempt to keep his sister’s killer behind bars and his venture into the music business.
