I don’t know whether he’s underestimating the risks in MNKD shares (on a lark, I bought a few when they dipped to $1.01 a while back; Guru counseled against it).
I do know he’s not overestimating the risks to humanity.

Sally from Iowa: “Thank you so much for writing about the Patrick Melrose novels on Audible. I will sign up so I can hear them. I had read a few before seeing the Showtime series, which I was eager to watch because of its star. It was one of the best things I’ve ever seen on TV. (The very best? The Wire.) I was amazed at how so much internal dialog from the book was expressed in so few words by the characters in the TV show. In other words, such a great adaptation. I so recommend it. (Sorry you couldn’t find the John Lithgow Bonfire and hope that changes so I can hear it. Funny story: I once bought Moby Dick from Audible, and when I began listening, it was in an English accent. That book, to me, is the Great American Novel, and there is no way I could bear listening to it in an English accent!)”

God Grant me the serenity to accept the things I can not change, the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference.~a very wise man (Reinhold Niebuhr)
