Bonus: The card Paterson's kid made him, plus your ideas for naming the new Oliver Stone movie about Wall Street.
Noel Paterson's kid Kallen gave him this card during his layoff. Inside it reads, "Dad, I hope you get an awesome job. P.S. Please take me out golfing soon." Paterson writes, "This is what keeps me going."
"Work hard Dad!"Noel Paterson
