In our last episode, the hardworking peeps of Steven J. Baum, P.C. threw a Halloween party wherein the attire was somewhat less than tasteful. Their playful antics were chronicled in the NYT, where one would assume they would be drowned out in the clamoring for centrism or whatever it is the oligarchy thinks would make the 99 percent shut the hell up already.
Only thing is, not so much (h/t ABL):
Well, looks like the firm, Steven J. Baum P.C., has had to shut its doors, and the firm’s named partner blames New York Times reporter Joe Nocera for the firm’s downfall.
In true job-creator fashion, no less a titan than Mr. Steven J. Baum his own self takes Nocera to task for daring to point out that assholes are indeed, you know, assholes:
“Mr. Nocera — You have destroyed everything and everyone related to Steven J. Baum PC,” said the letter. “It took 40 years to build this firm and three weeks to tear down.”
Hey Stevie – I submit that Mr. Nocera didn’t destroy a damned thing – you and your “people” did that, and if you had any dignity about you whatsoever, you would take ownership of your own actions. You and the brain trust that thought making fun of the foreclosed (whose plight was making you money) was a GOOD idea could use some lessons in humility, and apparently the first lesson hasn’t sunk in yet. Maybe it will before you wind up like those you mocked.
