Richard Severin Fuld Jr., people! With all this Lehman craziness, we'd almost forgotten the significance of this date in history. It's Maria Bartiromo's birthday! She does so much for us, I think we should do something nice for her. My first thought was flowers, but we are feeling sensitive about the fact that we already sent a certain Wall Street lady some stems and it didn't exactly pan out like we thought it'd would. So no plants. However, if you are down, we are proposing pooling our collective funds and buying her Lehman Brothers (though if nothing happens by Sunday night Carney and I will do it ourselves).
