Okay, so AIG’s been a bit obtuse and sent Obama and Co. into another tizzy.

More important, it’s led to an OUTRAIG: Public anger directed at corporations like AIG which blow up taxpayers’ funds for self-gain… go thumb it on Urban Dictionary.

(By the way, Lehman Sisters had made it to the Word of the Day on March 20; but it does look like it’s disliked more than it’s loved! Which is also okay I guess – at least it evoked a response.)

And, that’s where it struck me that while most people were wondering what the ‘poor’ investment bankers would do, how come no one was thinking of their kith and kin? That’s how, in this once-devastated capital, Lehman Sisters was created. It’s taken Urban Dictionary four months to publish it but, then, all good things do take time 🙂
