Here is a simple answer to the bonus mess at AIG.
Let them pay the bonus to the employees involved, then charge each employee with fraud. When they are convicted, take the bonus as money from a criminal enterprise.
My feeling is that instead of a bonus, these folks should get jail time. How can they be rewarded for such a huge screw-up? In response to your anti-spam test, some people in Lodi don't think I am human.
