Quote for the day

"If the person returns the money, I don't think there's a public interest in releasing the names."

New York Attorney General Andew Cuomo, explaining to reporters that nine of the top ten bonus recipients of AIG have agreed to return the money to the company.

I have this mental image of Cuomo on the phone with each executive explaining: "You can keep the bonus, but then I get to keep your kneecaps."

Any way, this is how it's done... not through some silly, potentially unconstitutional, overly broad 90% income tax on bonuses.
