After keeping a fairly low profile over the past 6 years, following the whole implosion of Lehman Brothers situation, Fuld announced Monday night that he's ready to rock. Text him the details of this weekend's rager and he's there, assuming the ole ball and chain doesn't have other ideas.

The occasion was MoMA’s annual film benefit, honoring director and screenwriter Alfonso Cuaron (‘Children of Men,’’ “Y Tu Mama Tambien”) and raising more than $1.1 million for preservation and acquisition in the museum’s film department...Former Lehman Brothers CEO Dick Fuld said he was attending the event with his wife Kathy, a museum trustee. “She has me on a tight leash, and I do what I’m told,” he said. Asked if he’s going out more, he said, “I plan to. It’s a new day.”

Dick Fuld: "The Bros Always Wins"

As previously mentioned, if one were inclined to relive the fall of Lehman Brothers, one could do so via the bankruptcy documents that were recently made available online. There you'll find, among other things, countless examples of what has been said so many times since September 15, 2008, which is that it's amazing how delusional the people at the very top were, vis-à-vis the firm's solvency/what people thought of it/everything. Also worth marveling at? The fact that Lehman lasted as long as it did with what appear to be barely literate troglodytes running the place.
