Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
From Mike Lux over at Open Left (Jul 14th)

Okay, Goldman. So as long as you're paying record bonuses to many of the same employees that engaged in these wildly speculative trading ventures, how about paying back the $13 billion you got from AIG by way of the U.S.Treasury? Or the unrevealed billions (likely many tens of billions) from the Federal Reserve?

THAT'S the scandal - being bailed out by the taxpayers and not paying back ALL of it (and giving bonuses instead...)
