Roubini's last crack at fame

Check out these quotes in NY Mag.

"The recession has been great for me," Roubini, whose nickname of Dr. Doom belies the permanent grin on his face, told us when we caught up with him later, as a line of girls formed to be photographed next to him. "They love my beautiful mind," he confided. "I am ugly, but they're attracted to the brains. I'm a rock star among geeks, wonks, and nerds."

Later he said the type of parties he likes are the ones where there are 10 girls to one guy and that his friend Bill Clinton "is a fan of this ratio."

We've heard of the Vagina Monologues, but Roubini's apartment has vagina walls!

Roubini calls these plaster epitaphs the "Vaginas of Doom."

Do you think just a wee bit of his bearishness has gone to his head?
