Apparently having seen the light of both reason and the torches of the mobs that had come for them, Andy Cuomo is reporting that 9 of the 10 biggest bonus-getters have divested themselves of their own toxic assets. Interestingly, while Mr. Cuomo was practically chomping at the bit to publish the names of those awarded bonuses when the story first broke, taking pity on the poor underfunded lynch mobs, he seems a tad more reticent to publish the identities of the newly contrite. I guess he fears that we might actually humanize some of these people and thereby quiet our righteous fists of populist fury. And we can’t have that when there’s still so much public anger to harvest, now can we?
