“Excuse me, Mr. Ackman? Can I have your autograph?” It’s a rainy afternoon in early December, just outside Pershing Square’s offices. William Holmes, a recent college graduate with a degree in economics, is shivering in the cold, holding a notebook. “I’ve studied everything you’ve done,” the young man gushes. “You are like the Socrates of our time.” Ackman writes the kid a note. “I’m telling you, I have a huge fan base,” he says as the beaming young man walks off. Then he turns to head back up to work. [Bloomberg via Matt Levine]
