We were all very sad when we heard that the sharp tonged, quick-witted Lucas Van Praag would be out at Goldman Sachs. He was the mouth of the bank — and what a mouth.Now not only is he gone, but he has also officially been replaced, reports Ben White of Politico. A former counselor to Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner and press secretary for the Clinton Administration will now be the voice of Goldman Sachs.

OK OK, we’ll let Van Praag go with this last quote (via NY Mag’s Daily Intel):

To the editor of the London Sunday Times:

I, too, read yesterday’s story in the Independent about us supposedly moving people to Spain. As an insider, I was almost certainly more surprised than you.
I accept that Sunday journalism is difficult, particularly in the UK where many titles compete for a share of a pretty small market, but there was a time when fact-based reporting wasn’t thought of as an oxymoron. Oh well.

Best / Lucas
