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.
