I was just watching Fox Business Channel, and they are reporting that Lehman Brothers, which declared bankruptcy last week, set aside 2.5 BILLION (with a B) for executive compensensation and bonuses for 2008. They are also reopening, any day I guess, under the name of Barclay's with 10,000 people keeping their jobs.My guess is that these 10,000 jobs are mostly management, executives and investment bankers, rather than the staff people.I hope that the bailout does not become legislation. I think I would rather let the system fail totally than cover for these scumbags any longer. If we have a depression, so be it.
