AIG Exec Whines About Public Anger, and Now Were Supposed to Pity Him? Yeah, Right | Media | AlterNet

The “Dear AIG, I Quit” letter from last week’s NYTimes was a popular item; I saw it posted on SU and it was one of the Times’ most emailed stories. I read the first page, but couldn’t bring myself to finish it – the ex-AIG worker whined about how tough times had gotten for him and AIG’s admin staff in the wake of public outrage. As one who has turned down decent-paying jobs in sectors or with companies that I don’t trust or respect, I can’t muster much pity for those who were paid well to further Wall Street’s culture of greed. (Thanks to wonderful, new-to-me Stumbler Fidi for the link and companionship in indignation.)
