Best quote from Bear Stearns CEO Jimmy Cayne in a WSJ story today:
Investment-firm chief Alexandra Lebenthal brought her 11-year-old son to visit Bear a few years back. She says she introduced him to Mr. Cayne, who pulled her aside and said, “That kid’s got a rotten handshake. He’s going nowhere in life.”
The line’s best delivered cigar in mouth, a la Burgess Meredith.
