The Humberto Long Award for Best Spam Byline

I’m collecting good pseudonyms from my spam because I think they are a literary achievement. As any author of fiction can tell you, coming up with names is tough. Here is a list of names attached to recent spam that has offered me great stock picks or a giant erection:

Jamel Cardenas
Josefina Lam
Humberto Long
Hilario Hagen
Lincoln Norman
Morrison Meyer
Joan Moss
Edgar Crowdy
Yong Doty
Glenna Bolton

I feel like the highest art is to marry two varying cultures but with a faintly striverish and even snobbish sound to the result.

STAR OF DAVID OR 'PLAIN STAR'?   If you thought "CP Time" was impolitic, on July 2 Donald Trump posted a picture on Twitter of a Star of David on top of a pile of cash next to Hillary Clinton's face. You'd think after the aforementioned crime stats incident (or after engaging a user called "@WhiteGenocideTM," or blasting out a quote from Benito Mussolini, or...) Trump would have learned to wait a full 15 seconds before hitting the "Tweet" button. But not only was the gaffe itself bad, the attempts at damage control made the BP oil spill response look a virtuoso performance.  About two hours after the image went up on Trump's account, somebody took it down and replaced it with a similar picture that swapped the hexagram with a circle (bearing the same legend "Most Corrupt Candidate Ever!"!). Believe it or not, it actually got worse from there. As reports arose that the first image had originated on a white supremacist message board, Trump insisted that the shape was a "sheriff's star," or "plain star," not a Star of David. And he continued to sulk about the coverage online and in public for days afterward, even when the media was clearly ready to move on. This refusal to just let some bad press go would haunt him later on.
