I scooped your story, grey lady!

This article was boring, except that it contained a mystery that New York Times reporters were unable or unwilling to crack. Specifically, the reporter tells us all about lux apartment used to film the sequal to the Wall Street movie which inspired several generations of NYC moneyed douchebags Wall Street employees, but also that the apartment's resident "declined to comment, saying the bank he works for would not allow it; because of populist anger over Wall Street bailouts, financial institutions have been asking their high earners to keep as low a profile as possible. He did not even want to be named." The mystery man removed all clues to his identity, except for a monogram "RMW" and some Dartmouth gear.

Really NYT? You're going to let him get away with that. 3 minutes of googling, my friends, 3 minutes. 31 West 21st Street, New York, New York 10010 is the lovely home of Richard Mark Weissman, Dartmouth 85, captain of the basketball team, Democrat, Theta Delta Chi brother, employee of Credit Suisse and then Broadpoint. Take that msm.
