Unfounded Rumor Of The Afternoon: Dick Fuld Staging Dress Rehearsal For Comeback?

I hear there is a SWAT team outside of the Barclays building 745 7th avenue. Unrelated but I also heard Phil Mickelson is in the building.

Update: A source confirms that while there was indeed a SWAT team outside the building, they were not called to the scene to deal with Dick Fuld in a ski mask. Apparently the NYPD periodically conducts a standard exercise called "Operation Hercules" (seriously) in order to "show potential terrorists that they are patrolling major areas throughout the city, and can get anywhere their services might be required on a moment's notice." Separately, Mickelson is indeed in the hizzous, "saying hi, shaking hands, workin' hard for the money."
