I have a solution for the "bonus" problem at AIG and other similar companies. Instead of dealing with all the BAD publicity, why not donate the funds to organizations that are rebuilding New Orleans homes? They could donate to construction groups, to groups that house volunteers, or to groups that feed people.
If the AIG bonuses were donated - $165 million - that would go a long way to help Louisiana real estate! It would also help turn the bad publicity into GOOD publicity! Who would argue with helping to rebuild the Katrina areas. (3 of my daughters have been down there to help rebuild.)
So if you are reading this, consider flagging it as notable. Consider writing your own blog on this topic. Tell your local newspaper (if it still exists). Twitt er it. Call the people who read the TV teleprompters on the evening "news". Get the word out! We can make a difference!
