"Hello? Is this Paul? Oh, hey, it's John in the Times photo department. So, thanks for agreeing to be the human face of indifferent plutocracy amid economic ruin. Well, I wouldn't call it an honor, per se. Some people didn't want to be in the article. No, seriously, Cayne asked us not to mention the naked violinist orgy thing. I know, nuts. Anyway, could you park a few of those exotic cars you mentioned right out front, in the driveway? We want the photo to look like something out of a rap video, or a Sopranos promo. What's that you say? A yellow convertible? Perfect! Hey, are there any homeless people in your neighborhood we could maybe frame in the corner of the picture? No? Oh well. At least pick out a really pimpin' tie, OK?" [Times]
