Icahn has cheezburger?

Well, maybe not that specifically, but investor/corporate raider (depends on your point of view, I guess) Carl Icahn has a finger or two in literally dozens of financial pies. (Warning: The interactive graph, says the little popup box, works in Internet Explorer only.)

One company controlled by Icahn these days is ImClone Systems, which developed the anti-cancer drug Erbitux. A couple years before Icahn's takeover, ImClone had been embroiled in an insider-trading scandal, the very one which got Martha Stewart sent to Club Fed.

Disclosure: You'd never have read this, had this title not occurred to me.

"Much win" on the title.

Not that I'm particularly interested in Icahn, even if he was (indirectly) linked to what sent Martha Stewart to prison.
