White Collar Thuggery - "Give me your Breitling! And the Rolex!"

Financial ruin isn't pretty. No question, the burst bubbles of the credit and real estate industries have put more than a few people out on the street. The ugly, sputtering, desperate last spasms of a business persona failing to cling on is exemplified by this story from the Boston Globe. I love the juxtaposition of the behavior - shake downs, threats, extortion - with the high class imagery of designer watches and fancy restaurants.
