Jake DeSantis Quits AIG

In a dramatic Op-Ed published in today's New York Times, a senior executive at AIG publishes his resignation letter.

The gist is "I did nothing wrong. I worked hard. I deserved to be paid." He makes the same point nine or ten times.

While I sympathize, the problem with the argument is that most people who lost out in the financial collapse also did nothing wrong. Life is tough, and unfair.
