Tina Brown complains that no one wants to date i-bankers because they're too depressed, editors of collapsed magazines are backpacking in Nepal, and "poormouthing"the act of complaining to genuinely broke people that your equity portfolio got banged up in the downturn and expecting them to go dutch for dinneris the newest trend. Actually, Tina, poormouthing has been a city-wide recreational sport for as long as hedge-fund managers and painters have lived on the same island. And we can't help but notice that you're not in Nepal. I-bankers? Necessary evils, really. There are kids to feed, Judith Leiber bags to buy, and country houses in Greenwich to re-decorate.
