Strike one

On Monday I tuned in to WTKK to listen to Jay Severin as I usually do on the drive home and he was holding forth on the subject of the AIG bonuses.  I did not listen for very long because Severin finally did something that he had failed to do in the decade he's been on the air.

He pissed me off.

His position was that what AIG did in terms of bonuses was none of our business.

My first reaction was to turn off the radio.

After a decade of talking about how our money is taken from us at the point of gun, for him to give AIG carte blanche with our money seemed patently ludicrous.  I simply could not understand how he could take that position.
