Slipping On A Banana Republic

Now ask yourself:

Has anybody resigned, from either the public or the private sectors (overlapping so lavishly as they now do)?

Has anybody even offered to resign?

Have you heard anybody in authority apologize, as in: “So very sorry about your savings and pensions and homes and college funds, and I feel personally rotten about it”?

Have you even heard the question being posed? O.K., then, has anybody been fired?

Any regulator, any supervisor, any runaway would-be golden-parachute artist? Anyone responsible for smugly putting the word “derivative” like a virus into the system?

To ask the question is to answer it.
