Buying Bear’s HQ

During Friday’s live blogging of the Bear Stearns collapse, I casually mentioned  their HQ. In the heat of the moment, I said something snarky and rather sarcastic:

10:56:  My office is 2 blocks from Bear’s HQ. I should walk over and make a bid for their building, which is really nice.

That’s the beauty of the internet — you never know where whatever it is you are saying might get picked up and reproduced. To wit: Marketwatch:


I walk by their building just about every day — and it is really nice. But, truth be told, I was joking — we simply do not need all that much space . . .
