Gratuitous Probing

The more I see Dick Grasso's mug plastered on TV and in the papers, the more I think he reminds me of someone:

That said, the Post's John Crudele seems a little too enthusiastic in pushing for a criminal investigation of trading improprieties under Grasso's watch. Grasso pleaded the Fifth with regard to issues about his compensation, and Crudele is content to indict him with that, even though (A) a it's not an admission of guilt and (B) it was done in regard to an entirely different issue. As Gary Weiss points out, if trading improprieties are the issue, Grasso can stand in line behind a number of other Big Board execs.
But he certainly looks evil. Are you pondering what I'm pondering?
