It seems everyone, at least the jealous ones are into giving success a black eye no matter how illogical. Blackstones very success has been its willingness to put itself out on a limb for success. Given their procloclivity for success, one would give credit where credit is due. Swartzman and co. has done a magnificant job in management so far and if their history is any indication their ipo and their public debut should be a real success. In other words, you can't knock success!
