How are the mighty fallen
[caption] Jerry Levy, [46, who lost his job at a hedge fund last summer], attending a PTA meeting where his experience in the financial industry is a plus with members.
Mr. Levy joined the PTA and immediately noticed that he tends to tackle matters with a bluntness honed in the financial industry, while the women, whether stay-at-home mothers or professionals, he said, communicate more diplomatically.
He has zealously bounded into the PTA, becoming its liaison to the Pelham Board of Education on financial matters. Recently, he announced his candidacy for a seat on the school board, a move applauded by several longtime PTA members.
Yeah, so he can tackle matters with "bluntness" elsewhere.
Anyhow, when was finance ever an industry?
Sorry the guy's out of work -- it's a horrible feeling, and what with the banksters having brought us two huge bubbles in a little over eight years, a lot of people have experienced it. Most, I dare say, with a lot more pain, heart-ache, and destruction than Mr. Levy. And some of them are still under the bus.
