Why Can’t Jamie Dimon Hold His Own Umbrella?


We understand that of all the dudes on Wall Street, Jamie Dimon is the one we trust the most. He’s smart and canny: He was there to salvage the remains of Bear Stearns in March, and Washington Mutual last week. Also, he has a nice face. But when we saw this picture in the Times on Saturday, we had to wonder: At this particular moment in time, with every normal person in America hating on Wall Street fat cats, is it not a little awkward for dude to be cruising around with a Fonzworth Bentley–type character who holds his umbrella for him? We do give him points for the fact that dude looks like Ron Perelman, though. [NYT]
