No Treats for Russo

1:00 PM -- BARCELONA -- World Mobile Congress 2008 -- We bumped into Alcatel-Lucent (NYSE: ALU) CEO Pat Russo today here in Barcelona, and have to report a very serious omission on the part of her senior management team.

It's common knowledge that Pat is very fond of peanut M&Ms. Yet, although we revealed this snippet more than a year ago, not one of Russo's colleagues has treated her to a bag of the nutty treats, she told us today on the sidelines of her company's 4G joint venture news conference. (See Russo's Weakness and AlcaLu, NEC Team for 4G.)

Basically, Russo is suffering from a chocolate drought -- and that's just not good for the soul.

So, on behalf of Pat, we're making an impassioned plea to AlcaLu's seven-strong senior management team -- GET THE SWEETIES IN!!! (See Russo Shakes Up AlcaLu's Top Team.)

re: No Treats for Russo I think there is a sign in the elevator next to the button for the executive floor saying....

"May Contain Nuts"
