MyRye.com asked mayoral candidate Doug French about the Otis team airplane that took flight over the Rye – Harrison game: “As far as the plane – It was funny. I have been involved in Rye elections since 1989 and traditionally the parties have agreed to keep politics out of school events and I agree with that, but it was a good laugh near the end of the campaign. If it were us, we would have used a hot-air balloon for the sake of the environment.”
We hear the Osborn School fair raised around $70,000. The money will go to fund cultural enrichment programs and smart boards. View MyRye.com’s photo album of the Osborn School “Monster Mash” Carnival.
In Andrew Ross Sorkin’s new book, Too Big to Fail, the New York Times writer talks about Lehman’s Dick Fuld meeting with Morgan Stanley’s John Mack at his home in Rye (PHOTO, below: Mack, the House):
"On Saturday morning, Mr. Fuld pulled up to Mr. Mack’s mansion in Rye, N.Y. Despite the beautiful weather, he was tense. He could already imagine the headlines if it leaked.
The Morgan Stanley team had arrived and was socializing in the dining room, where Mr. Mack’s wife, Christy, had put out plates of food she had ordered from the local deli. There was Walid Chammah and James Gorman, the firm’s co-presidents; Paul Taubman, the firm’s head of investment banking; and Mitch Petrick, head of corporate credit and principal investments.
Bart McDade, Mr. Fuld’s new No. 2, showed up next, dressed in a golf shirt and khakis. Skip McGee, the firm’s head of investment banking, was running late; his driver got lost.
As the group took their seats on sofas around a coffee table, an awkward silence followed; no one knew exactly how to begin."
I wonder what deli they ordered from…
