The memo even explored why Gensler ran the New York Marathon with Corzine’s number more than 20 years ago. According to the report, Gensler learned that Corzine had registered to run the 1991 race. Gensler asked Corzine’s secretary if Corzine was actually going to run. Several weeks later, the secretary informed Gensler that Corzine had decided against running and wouldn’t need the number, the memo said. The secretary gave the number to Gensler. [Bloomberg via DI]

    If only Corzine decided to run in 1991. Then may'be he'd be in the olympics right now instead of blowing up MF Global.

    Corzine looks like that alky hobo in Florida who had his face eaten off.

    This comment sounds like it was left by an "alky" hobo…

    Sorry it violated your personal rules for headlines/stories.

    Basic advice for new DB users:

    1. Comments on Matt Levine articles are acceptable although you should try to add something more than a redundant "what Matt only X footnotes?!"

    2. Challenging Bess is rarely a good idea.

    -Guy who never realized Bess and Matt had such close last names until typing them

    3. Don't over-cute the signature line.

    Any relation?

  10. Posted by guest | July 31, 2012 at 3:13 PM

    Touche. I'll be honest, when I went to type Bess's last name I had a moment where I thought Margherita Matt and her might have been married. Threw me into complete disarray.

    Ugh, I didn't think this through – I realize now it looks like I'm feeding that stupid zombie meme (which I honestly was not trying to do – just trying to make a silly joke, for which I would give myself a gentleman's D+ or maybe a C-).

    I shall banish myself from posting for 60 days and engage in Dalio-esque self-reflection as punishment.

    wow this comment section sucks. and wtf are you talking about anyways Bess?

  21. Posted by Captain Obvious, CFA | August 1, 2012 at 10:22 AM

    Being a little too cavalier about whether a number was Corzine's and whether or not it could be used by someone else… hmm… what does this remind me of…
