Nine out of ten AIG executives agree: maybe becoming a pariah is a bad thing after all.
Those executives are giving back all their bonus money that they took from the government (you know, that government of the people, by the people, and paid for by the people). I think they hope we all forget their names (we don't know them), and they'll be able to live normal lives again (with the millions they made BEFORE the general public started balancing their checkbooks).
Only one AIG executive has held out, who apparently has already used this bonus to buy some rocky real estate on Mars. Congratulations, AIG Exec #10, on being the first dickhead to travel to another planet! The alien microbes would prefer you go away and leave their stuff alone, though.
(And again, I'm sure this'll remind all my readers to pay their taxes/bailouts by April 15th.)
