"What happens at the St. Regis stays at the St. Regis." For eight decades, it worked. No outsider in living memory had witnessed the entire proceedings firsthand. I wanted to break the streak for several reasons.

Oh! the poor 1%. They have so much money, they have nothing better to do, than play dress up, and play at being comedians.
Thanks Carrie.

What's funny is the tea party thinks these guys are holding up The Constitution and making them rich.

Noted, emailed a copy, tweeted. It reminds me of a conversation with an old friend who went to see The Wolf of(?) Wall Street with her 22 year old son and both were so embarrassed that they never even discussed the movie. She's not particularly uptight about sex scenes in movies. But she said the thing began with a huge full-frontal scene and there were many other flagrant scenes to follow. Maybe the makes of the movie knew this "secret" Wall Street, eh?

this frat is wild and very, very sad. The members have lost sight of reality and we aren't aware of who they are so we let them rule and run the world in their sick way.

Sad, pathetic and completely out of touch with reality. HOWEVER, more than anything appalling, because these are the guys guiding our financial affairs, whispering in the ears of our elected officials, and in all likelihood pulling many of the strings that affect us normal people day-to-day. How scary is that?

That is so disgusting. These people need a wake up call. We lost most of our 401K due to their shenanigans and they think it is funny? Shame on them. Noted and shared on facebook.
