The trouble with drinking and sending late night hate mail

One of the bloggers I link to sent along this comment from an “Eddie”, posted mistakenly, my friend  thinks, on his blog. Edie’s IP address places him in Greenwich and as you’ll see, he thought he was posting on my blog. I don’t want you to feel discouraged Eddie but try to spew your stuff before hitting the gin. You’re getting all confused here. Next thing you know, I’ll see your name on Drudge!

Chris, the best thing about your blog is that absolutely nobody reads it or gives a shit about anything you think. Give it up already, ok?

Eddie dropped his tumbler here but after a quick refill he was back on the keyboard but still on someone else’s site. Here we go:

You are a waste of good oxygen.

    Apparently “Eddie” is a firm believer in W.C. Fields’ philosophy, “I’d rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.”

    Maybe Eddie works for Darien Rowayton Bank, which recently received a cease and desist order from the FDIC:

    Darien Rowayton Bank, Darien, CT; FDIC-09-178b; Issued 5/7/09

    So maybe he’s just having a bad day…

      IB’r, that makes at least two local banks to receive that letter. One bank holds loans on 26 dead spec houses in Greenwich alone (and about 3X that number in the immediate vicinity, for $235 million in bad debt), and, while I don’t know what Rowayton’s exposure is, I have a strong feeling that we’re not out of the woods yet here in Fairfield County. Now that I’ve seen a picture of Eddie, by the way, I’m not unconvinced that he isn’t related to that former partner at Bear Stearns. Or not.
