Gary Weiss Thinks Grasso Suit Is 'Silly', Grasso Is A Diminutive, Hairless Man

In a recent open letter-- seriously-- to Eliot Spitzer and Andrew Cuomo, Gary Weiss goes to bat for Dick Grasso, claiming he deserved (and deserves) "every penny" of his compensation package, and that Cuomo should drop what Spitzer started. (Weiss also brags about how he "used to slam [Grasso] Business Week" before it was fashionable to do so and calls him a "bald little man," which we think is kind of uncalled for and somewhat counterintuitive but won't pass judgment on at this time). Weiss would also, apparently, like Cuomo to focus his attention on the securities arbitration system, pump and dump fraud, hedge funds, and naked short-selling conspiracy theorist CEOs. When he finally has him where he wants him, Weiss takes Cuomo to task for using the phrase "different time" twice--twice!-- in a recent interview. Then he signs his name in letters cut out of magazines and newspapers, and encloses a picture of Cuomo's bulldog Maude, who, suspiciously, has recently gone missing.*
Dear Eliot, Dear Andrew [Forbes]
