AIG EXECS: Are They Gonna Change?
History's been made! Bonuses are being Given Back!

I suppose one of the biggest stories this week is about those bloodsucking AIG fatcats who received Big Bonuses recently, after the company received Government Money as a 'bail-out' of sorts. Maybe the company couldn't afford to recklessly dish out cash until they got its bail-out? The prevailing line of logic, until recently, was that AIG was OBLIGATED, yea, verily, REQUIRED to pay out those big bonuses in order to, as the company said, "keep the best and brightest within our corporation." And so, I thot that was all done; no more unjustified mega-bonuses Ever Again...

Aha, but a starting development presents itself here. Fatcat Bigwigs at AIG are GIVING THEIR BONUS MONEY BACK! Are they doing so out of Moral Obligation, or that they think, "well, it Just Doesn't Look Good to take the money right now." Still, a third possibility is that the AIG bosses have contacted those overcompensated fatcats, and advised them, "hey, buddy, just give yer money back for a little while 'til things blow over..." Well, whatever the reason, Corporate Execs are Giving Their Bonus Money Back. YIPPIE!!!

Remember when actor Michael Douglas said in that movie, "Greed Is Good"...well, it should be amended thusly: "Greed Is Good As Long As People Don't Know or Care If You're Greedy". And believe me, this ain't the time to dish out undeserved dollars. I 'spose now, that corporate execs are having to economize, going to such drastic measures as using Regular instead of Unleaded when they fill up their Lincoln Town Cars, or perhaps using plain instead of scented bathroom tissue in the Executive Restroom. Hey, we all have to sacrifice, right?

A while back, I had to perform a 'full system recovery' on my computer. In Doing So, I lost some programs, including my 'Picture It' software. Doing some housecleaning recently, I found the Program Disks. So, in times to come, I'll be performing my magic and casting my spell once again. Although, it's not a quick way of placing a post...these doggone pictures take longer than most of my overdeveloped and ridiculously narrative-type entries. Now, I'll be able, once again, to add ridiculously overblown, naive and moronic photo-satires. You've been warned...

Cis, are you speaking of 'word match' or the actual dictionary itself? Both of those were at a site called Bravenet.com, which is a site full of blog-tools...I couldn't find it when I searched Bravenet today...people keep changing their websites all around...
