    That’s personal (on paper) wealth, not the fund’s dollars. BP lost a lot more than 450mm, just as Citadel lost far more than Mr. Griffin’s personal losses of 2b.

    Thanks, Matt. Fixed.

    I wonder how much Boone Pickens University (formerly Oklahoma State) is going to slash from its budget to cover these losses.
    All those big gifts he made were managed by his fund.

    All those windmills in W Texas blew his money away…

    Guy, define “sink”? Like if I gave you 3 billion, then took away a few hundred million..or hell, even a billion, would you consider yourself sunk? You must be quite the hitter. What’s your Forbes #?

    And a lot of things “could happen”, but what better group of scum would you recommend?

    (If you need the below comment translated into a grammatical wreckage of lower-case letters, missing punctuation, and drunken stream of consciousness I’ll be happy to re-compose.)

    So, would you say you are or are not bitter about the 2004 election? Not really sure how this pertains to his performance as a money manager. Being that I am all of 26 I don’t think I have had time to leave much of a mess but I aspire to leave many messes going forward.

    I really have no idea what you said or might have more to offer.

    No anti Boone comments.

    Daddy needs a new # infusion.

    What ever you do, don’t mention Swift Boating.
