sign of the times

This morning at work, I encountered someone who was obviously unfamiliar with the building's new high-tech elevator control system, a conversation starter with many people. The conversation turned to occupations. When I asked "What do you do?" he answered, "I used to manage hedge funds. Now I'm looking for a lawyer to keep me out of jail." Ouch!

That was probably the first honest statement he's made since he was employed as a financier.

Amazing.... no Perp Walks yet.

That's quite possible. I wonder how many of these perp walks we'll be seeing in the coming months.
