Hedge Fund Titan Phil Falcone Will Not Be Denied

This is a bit afield but it’s too funny not to mention:

Phil Falcone, one of the richest and most powerful hedge fund managers in the world, brought his own scissors to the ribbon-cutting ceremony of High Line, a new, elevated park on Manhattan’s West Side, to which Falcone and his wife donated $10 million just last week.

Apparently, Falcone believed that his gift would entitle him to stand beside Mayor Mike Bloomberg, designer Diane von Furstenberg and three of the park’s other major donors as they snipped away at the ceremonial ribbon. Discovering that wouldn’t be the case, he decided he’d cut it anyway.
