Now it's only half done. Too late to stop and too early to stop ...

Hey Porte, 

 these are good links - about AIG.  In the end, did they get their bonuses? I remember that the FED started to regulate pay/bonuses of any bank receiving bailouts, but then it seems like the media lost attention to the story as time went by.  I know that I emailed both my representatives and AIG with fairly nasty letters about the bonuses.

 I don't understand the argument that A) you need those people to unwind the deals B) you don't want them to go to a rival firm and profit from the insider info.

 A- these guys are idiots - should have a third party handle this.

 B- it should be possible to arrest them/harass them if they do something like this.  I'm serious here, what they did was as powerful as a terrorist act - why not put them in guatanamo?  Just call them unlawful combatants and say goodbye!
