Now that you're a mover and shaker, I'd like to welcome you to annual stockholders meetings, chi-chi airport waiting lounges and to the best tables at the finest restaurants.
Now that you're a rich, stockholder-type, you can afford
to eat at some of the more hoity-toity restaurants.
By the way, not only are you now a proud stockholder, but you'll also be happy to hear that your children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren (and probably several generations beyond that) will also be paying for the $1 trillion bailout of this nation's stalwarts of capitalism.
The Dow Jones may be climbing -- albeit temporarily -- out of its spiral, but don't look for things to turn around soon.
I'm just glad to know some Smart Guys are on the case...yikes!
Extra: In what can only be described as Mugshot o' the Week, I (with the help of The Smoking Gun) present, the AIG shirt guy hoping for a bailout.
