I am a huge fan of the persistence of both these brothers and the lesson of waiting for your time to come. Preet Bharara is holding the financial world accountable as the US Attorney of the Southern District of New York, the most important prosecutor in the United States, after a number of years as a line federal prosecutor and a Congressional Aide. Vin Bharara kept at it after the Pit deflated along with the first dotcom bubble, pursuing the unlikely idea to sell Diapers over the Internet. (See my prior post touching on Diapers.com)
This piece in Dealbook is a nice tribute to the Jersey brothers.
