    one of the few cnbc regulars who i had respect for. always listened when he was on. by all indications, a good man.

    i had no idea he was 88 years old. his mind certainly did not reveal his age. i'm somewhat shocked, and certainly saddened by his death.

  4. Some nice tribute thread, you can't even get his name right in the title.

  7. Bill handled the RTC very well. Wish he was in charge of this latest debacle.

    He had more sense than many and even recently at age 88 was in favor of giving $$$ to the banks who were successful and suggested that we let the failing banks fail -- that they have their assets bought up and then re-sold piece by piece.

  9. Bill Seidman was civil, decent, and personable.

    He was in other words a "class act".

    And it is a tribute to him that even though his colleagues at CNBC had none of his attributes whatsoever, he remained true to his admirable character.
