Excuses, excuses.

Look, I don't know the details of all the maneuvering Grasso did to hide the money he was making or who was involved in helping him hide it, but maybe if the rest of you board fuckers had been paying some attention this wouldn't have happened.

Of course, there's probably more than a decent chance that a lot of these guys knew what was going on, and they're just covering their asses now. Seems kinda interesting that Spitzer and the SEC are only going after former board members, as well. How convenient that it's only guys who left that were involved in possible wrongdoing.

And yeah, letting securities guys self-regulate is a real good idea. Why don't we just let sex criminals and known alcoholics self-regulate themselves while we're at it? Only the business criminals could get away with a neat little arrangement like that, considering that this country has for all too long been owned and run by business criminals.
