Rajat Gupta Is Reporting To Prison, Yes, But Did You Hear About His Coveted Social Hour Time Slot?

On Tuesday, Rajat K. Gupta, the former managing director of the consulting firm McKinsey & Company who was convicted of insider trading, is scheduled to report to a minimum-security prison camp in Massachusetts, spending the next two years not far from his one-time friend and partner in crime, Raj Rajaratnam…In an interesting twist, Mr. Rajaratnam, the man to whom Mr. Gupta was convicted of giving corporate secrets on a raft of companies, including Goldman Sachs, is in FMC Devens’ federal medical center. Mr. Rajaratnam, the founder of New York hedge fund Galleon Group, is a diabetic and FMC Devens’ medical unit provides dialysis. His facility is next to the satellite camp where Mr. Gupta will be. One of the differences between the two prisons is that Mr. Rajaratnam has slightly longer visiting hours. On Fridays, he can mix with friends and family from 8:30 a.m. to 3 pm; Mr. Gupta can receive guests only from 2:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. [Dealbook]

    • Fucking and Punching says:

      I imagine Shaz to be like Hank Moody's long lost son on the set of Santa Monica Cop… A chubby socially awkward youth who still lives at home with mom but was recently given a meaningless job that he is entirely unqualified for so that the director could curry favor with his hot MILF of a mom and/or his father (Hank) who is the show's only talented writer. On the set of Santa Monica Cop Hank's son proceeds to fuck up in monumental ways and commit crude and inappropriate acts that would get a normal person fired but remains employed because of his connections (ie. hot mom and important dad). So, logically, if we extend this analysis to Dealbreaker, Shaz must be related to either Lloyd Blankfein or Jamie Dimon, both of which we know Bess to have a large crush on, and/or Shaz's dad is the CEO of Breaking Media.

        I imagine you should try the decaf, or failing that, familiarize yourself with the concept of the paragraph break.

    What time are arts and crafts? They will probably be puffing on stogies and popping bottles. What a joke

      Is it bad that I'm fantasizing about prison?

      Free room and board, free health care, far more time for socialization than I currently have chained to my desk. Toilet wine is probably better than that schlop I paid $15/glass for last night. Sounds like some great opportunities for networking/career advancement. Anyone got some hot tips they can pass my way?

    I am concerned that if they run Dealbreaker Dramatic Reading Night III like they run Opening Bell, the dramatic readings won't start at the alleged 7:30 pm but at midnight.
