SO ABOUT GRADUATION...
Months after construction on the Big House began,

Asthe investigation of the destroyed CIA tapes
continues, former CIA official, Jose Rodriguezhas
refused to testify unless he is given immunity. Being
the person who requested for the removal of this evi-

THRILLER AUTHOR

custody after violating his bail terms for hisoarmed
robbery case. He contends his innocence in the
case, but if convicted he could face up to a life
sentence in prison witthe possibiity of paro'e.
Maybe this will finally lead to a successful book
deal after If I Did It went unreleased, next time
we see his name in the headines it could be: OJ.

Gold knows his educational background gives him the expertise to
manage the career of fictional "A-lister" Vincent Chase better than
Chase's neighborhood chum Eric. (Eric: And what are you, a Rhodes
Scholar? Ari: No, I'm just e lowly Harvard grad with a JD/MBA from
Michigan, that's it, Eric.)
