As a postscript, I was sad to learn of Alan Abelson’s passing yesterday. He was a legend and model for me in how to succinctly, but creatively comment and present the story of the financial markets. His wry, yet poignant commentary always read in stark contrast to the monotonous and stale financial journalism of the day. I was immensely humbled when he took interest in my work and found his wit and wisdom ever present – such as his first question to me, “What’s a nice boy like you swimming with the sharks?”
While I’ve wondered that for sometime, the truth likely lies much closer to the interest he instilled with his writings in contextualizing the sharks and their ever changing environment.
Thanks for everything Alan – you will be greatly missed.
