Um, indeed. The clincher? I just clicked on your link to the article and saw that a correction had been posted. I was hopeful, thinking that perhaps the correction would be an admission by the Times that they'd neglected to run this as an editorial condemning these women instead of a reported piece.

No such luck. The correction:

"An article on Wednesday about a support group for women dating or married to men in the banking industry misspelled the surname of a prominent Wall Street investor in referring to the effect that significant financial news has on a partner’s mood. The investor is Warren E. Buffett, not Buffet."

You can't make this stuff up (or, maybe you can???).

I'm usually the first one to say "well, it's all relative." But in this case, it isn't. It's black and white and these women are in the red (and i don't mean financially).


We love to excoriate them, but the bald fact is that without people like these a large chunk of the NYC economy tailored towards the super-rich (and super stupid) is going to crash. I wonder what the hyper-expensive sushi places will turn into when they shutter? Maybe something more welcoming to ordinary folks.
