An AP study has found that $1.6B went to bailed-out bank execs.
Now they know the trap behind the bait: private business can do whatever it wants. Government-owned businesses (and that includes every single bailed-out bank, carmaker, and shoe store) has to do exactly what the government wants. How much do you bet that most of that money gets paid back within a week?

Today, a colleague and I were discussing the disturbing predilection of Felis Domesticus, the common housecat, to forcefully regurgitate his expensive food immediately after ingestion. After I had made several pungent and brilliant points linking this behavior to hereditary factors, my esteemed friend ventured a few ignorant and poorly-constructed facts attempting to tie the phenomenon to an environmental cause.
While I refrained from the temptation to destroy his pitiful opinions with the power and majesty of science, I will indeed devote a paragraph in my dissertation to his obtuse and backward notions. Jackass.
