05/04/2004 Archived Entry: "It's THREE fruitcakes, actually."
Goldman Sachs, the Wall Street goliath that prides itself on its close relations with the world's leading businesses, has had a damaging row with Google that may have cost it $US100 million ($A138 million) in fees...I guess if you're going to be an unnamed source, you might as well say the most outrageous thing possible. I wonder if Eric feels slighted. Or George.

What a stupid man to annoy the quasi-billionaires in Gooooogle!
Sigh! Could you please give me a gmail account as a comforter?

Wow, that's sad and funny...I really don't know whether to laugh or cry. But I think laugh it is.
Maybe that guy is upset because he didn't get invited to Gmail, and it's his last futile attempt to get one...
Would it help if I called you a bald fruitcake?
Time is precious, thanks for reading this.

That is the business world.
COLD. BLOODLESS and Lots of backslashes.
If war is cruel, business is worse.

It's FOUR fruitcakes, actually... counting the CEO who tried to strike a backroom deal with a notoriously socially responsible company.
Considering some other bad decisions Paulson has made in the first quarter of 2004, he might just end up scrounging for gmail invites to sell on ebay when he doesn't get his bonus this year from G.S.

Who the hell uses "fruitcake" as an insult anyway? Is that supposed to hurt? Oh, boo hoo, he called me a "fruitcake". Please, someone needs to tell "insider" he should use his god given right to cuss like a sailor!

I hope Google continues to innovate after its IPO.
PS. Can I get an gmail invitation?
