The Most Important Clarification Of Our Time

Charlie Gasparino would like you to know that contrary to popular belief, it was not a JPMorgan banker who said "Everybody hates Goldman" at Trader Monthly's fight night, it was him. No Sleeves apparently informed the audience of the sentiment regarding GS right before announcing before the winner of the boxing event, and right after juicing. And since we're on the topic of giving credit where credit's due, Gasparino was also the one shouting "Lehman sucks" up and down Wall Street yesterday, hoping to profit from his shorts on the bank. Kidding! Would make things a lot easier for the SEC if I wasn't though, right? [PageSixMag]

The Art Of The Farewell

Not everyone gets to write a New York Times Op-Ed when they quit their job, however disaffected. It’s also easier to quit a job after twelve years of cashing investment banking paychecks. No matter how “morally bankrupt” Goldman Sachs is, Greg Smith isn’t giving his bonuses back. Unlike Smith, who quit his job on his own terms and got to publish most of his resume in the Times, most of corporate America isn’t as lucky – and almost everyone in corporate America really wants to quit their job. So what are you supposed to do if you can’t get any above-the-fold space in a major newspaper? You have to burn bridges the old fashioned way – by writing a farewell email.
