Progressive Revival

My post God Damn Wall Street stirred up quite a response.  One reader named T wrote:

“It’s those on Wall Street who are saying “God damn to everyone else, I’m making sure I’m taken care of because it’s going to get worse before it gets better.” Don’t underestimate Wall Street. They’re not clueless; they know exactly what they’re doing and why. And that is why they can’t be trusted with bail out money, as has already been proven.”

Apparently in response to T’s lament, the New York Times reports:

President Obama announced on Wednesday a salary cap of $500,000 for top executives at companies that receive the largest amounts of bailout money, calling the step an expression not only of fairness but of “basic common sense.”

Sanity and justice seem to be returning to our country.
