An Open Letter

To Lloyd C. Blankfein, CEO of Goldman Sachs, inspired by CBS News

Dear Mr. Blankfein,

Our mutual friend, Hank
"Spanky" Paulson, has informed me of your plans to set aside $6.8 billion, of the $10 billion we sent you recently, for employee bonuses. Allow me to be among the first to congratulate you on your immense generosity in this season of giving. This will not only reward your dedicated employees in their quest to destroy the last vestiges of the free market, but will be of enormous benefit to the waiters, doormen, and cab drivers throughout the greater New York metro area.

I do hope the remaining $3.2 billion will be enough for the little Mrs. to fulfill her diamond tiara fantasy. Having more baubles than Catherine the Great provides an excellent example for the young people regarding setting one's goals and "working hard" to achieve them. Should you feel the need for further pocket change, or more lessons in the art of materialistic paganism, please drop by my offices at any time.

Happy Holidays and keep up the good work.

Satan ( Yes, that Satan)
