Jon Stewart's powerful brother

Jon Stewart is a funny commedian- some of the time.. And I agree with his views on occasion.  And he has a good shtick going where he pretends to care about everyday people...

Here's an interesting 'Did You Know?"...

Jon Stewart's real name is Jon Leibowitz

Ok, nice name, you say-- big deal-- so what?

Jon has an older brother named Larry Leibowitz.

Once again, So what! Who bleeping cares?, you say..

Larry Leibowitz is the Chief Operating Officer of the New York Stock Exchange...

Think about it a moment-  the brother of the most popular political satirist of the moment, on a show where most people under 21 claim they get their news from, is one of the most powerful people on Wall St.

He was appointed chief operating officer in the first quarter of 2010. In this capacity, Leibowitz is responsible for all the operations management, global cash execution and global listings. He previously served as group executive vice president and head of U.S. Execution and Global Technology from 2007 until 2009. He joined NYSE Euronext in 2007, having served as managing director and chief operating officer, Americas Equities, at UBS Investment Bank.
