Chris flew to New York today anticipating the first of 3 consecutive work weeks (home on the weekends, of course). About the time he arrived he received a call from an associate at work requesting that he return to SLC as soon as possible to help with the fallout of Lehman's bankruptcy filing. SO, looks like he'll catch a flight in the am tomorrow....since he'd just been on a plane for 5 hours. No one in their right mind would turn around and hop on another one. Plus, now he gets to have a nice dinner in New York!
The good news is, he'll be in town indefinitely while everything is worked out at Lehman Bros. The bad news is, our economy is crashing, and burning.
See the link below if you want to catch up a bit. I find myself gravitating toward these articles so I can understand the financialese that Chris speaks after work.
