The Solomon Scandals
The D.C. newspaper novel, the media,the Washington area, tech and other surrealism: David Rothman at large
‘Glengarry Glen Ross’ movie on real estate hell: ‘Coffee’s for closers’ and ‘Only one thing counts in this life. Get them to sign on the line which is dotted.’

 

Not everyone in real estate or construction is Washington-smooth like Sy Solomon. Thanks to my friend Court Merrigan for this link to an excerpt from the Glengarry GlenRoss movie, adapted from the David Mamet play. Both show, in Court’s words, ”the cold seething black heart of capitalism.” Management doesn’t want you sipping coffee if you’re not closing. Language alert.
