It turns out that we weren't the only one who found Bear Stearns CEO Jimmy Cayne strangely charming in the Wall Street Journal's supposed "takedown piece" on him this morning. "He's a pothead who likes to enjoy a fat spleef as a way of relaxing from tournament level bridge. You don't get much cooler than that," said Salon. "It's unbelievable. The phones are ringing off the hook, and everyone wants to play golf with me now," Cayne told CNBC's Charlie Gasparino. Yeah, dude. We'd like to play golf with you, too. Especially if by "play golf" you mean, get ahold of some chemdawg and do bong hits while watching Planet Earth.
