Quote of the Day*

"We participated in things that were clearly wrong and have reason to regret... We apologize.”

-- Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd "God's Work" Blankfein, addressing a Directorship conference in New York City; worth mentioning is that while Blankfein admits that Goldman helped ass-fuck the global economy, he's still giving the go-ahead to a record year of bonuses for his executives and the mass-eviction of strapped homeowners during the holiday season.

In other words, thanks for the apology, douche.

(By the way, take a look at this: TDG: God Confirms He's Just Doing Lloyd Blankfein's Work/11.20.09. It's one of the funniest things you'll read all day.)

*The whole quote thing was originally supposed to be a once-in-a-while kind of deal, then it became a running joke that there were several Quotes of the Week; now I'm just gonna have to finally give in and do it day by day.

He was apologizing. He never said he felt bad about it or planned to actually, you know, change. Stop being so naive, Chez.

This is good business, why actually DO anything when an apology will shut people up?
