A reason why so many people kinda don't like rich people
"The Most Remote Place on Earth"

"Ken Lewis, Failure"

I think labeling Mr. Lewis a failure is premature. But his reputation as a business genius has taken a big hit. (A Wall Street Journal columnist adds details.)

My wife and I used to have a little Bank of America stock. But after he bought Merrill, he started talking about how big Bank of America now was and how cool it was that they were so really, really big.  It sounded like the locker room talk of high school boys.

So I sold our BAC on September 26. At $35.40/share. I'm no business genius, but that's looking like a pretty good move.
