On the one hand, it's nice that Citi had the sense to realize that shitty jokes about women would've reflected poorly on the organization, and subsequently disinvited Ben Stein as a keynote speaker for their May 17 event. On the other, the sagely advice that would've come out of his mouth (a la this, from August 2007: "Merrill lynch is an *astonishingly* well-run company") probably would have been hilarious.
