Philanthropist, and former CEO of Lehman, Richard Fuld, was apparently sucker punched in the employee gym after the fall of the firm was announced.
On a scholarly note, who was punished in the pillory, in the good old days?
Although all sharpers, beggars, impostors and vagabonds were liable to be placed in the pillory, it was mostly used for gentlemen and aristocrats as a way of humiliating them.
Fuld himself is outraged that his firm was not bailed out, so that he might have continued his Journey from Success to Significance. Vanity, saith the preacher, all is vanity!
