It is possible to connect dots to certain Texas regulators and various licensees (who the regulators are supposedly regulating) through LinkedIn. The Sixth degree of Separation? More like one of two. I don't think Kevin Bacon will show up, though.
You are so wrong. One LPHI director gets you to the guy in Pasadena. The pumper gets you to a regulator who gets you to Madoff who gets you to Kevin Bacon! The Six Degrees of Separation are more like 4.74 Degrees of Separation. This seems odd while I'm sipping a beer in Whistler Village, but if I get the hot bartenders name I should end up with Kevin Bacon in 4.74 links.
