The fact that former Lehman Brothers CEO Dick Fuld has yet to show his face to former employees, choosing instead to hide behind an email not sent 'til the end of last week, has caused a lot of anger. And, not surprisingly, a lot of what seem to be made up stories that conveniently center around the physical suffering of The Gorilla. In the last twenty-four hours, we're received the following accounts:
"Dick Fuld had audacity to use the Lehman gym [on Sunday] and got punched in the face."
"I've been hearing rumors (and I would take this with a grain of salt) that on the Friday before all shit hit the fan at Lehman, Dick Fuld had a panic attack and someone saw him being take out of the Lehman building on a stretcher. This is supposedly an eye witness account from one of my boyfriend's contacts at Lehman. Take it for what it is. I wouldn't be surprised if it were true."
"Dick Fuld came into 745 today and nearly got run over by a cab crossing the street."
All highly unlikely, though all completely understandable revenge fantasies that many would pay good money to be true, had DF not robbed them of their life's savings. And frankly, on behalf of the former Brothers, we've had it up to here with Fuld's refusal to come out of his hermetically sealed bunker, which has clearly driven his erstwhile employees to hallucination. So we are tasking our best (only) investigative journalist, to make good use of the fact that we've got Dick's home address in Connecticut, and taking a trip out to Greenwich this weekend. That or we will suggest to Charlie Gasparino that it was Fuld who leaked his voicemails, which will get the FBI on the case. Fuld is sure to be smoked out that way.
