Bodes Well for Alex's Future She has the same birthday as Jamie Dimon

I have always been a big fan of Jamie Dimon, not just because he swooped in and saved Bear Stearns at a firesale price but because it shows that after being summarily fired from Citi (then Citigroup) for insulting his long time mentor Sanford (I am responsible for the mess that is now Citi) Weill's daughter, he went on lead JPMorgan Chase. 

So it comes a pleasant surprise that my daughter and Jamie share a birthday, March 13. 

What is also notable is that last year on his 52nd birthday,  March 13, 2008, is when he got the call from Bear Stearns about buying/saving them and we know how that story ends. 

Best wishes to Alex and Jamie Dimon.

I've always liked Jamie Dimon as well.

I think he actually knows what risk management is unlike so many other buffoons out there.
