A Public Catharsis

Many are calling for some sort of public catharsis in the economic community. When even a US senator suggests resignations and suicide to the Wall Street navel-gazing bulls that set off this nonsense, you've got some serious public anger out there. I'm more a fan of public recognition of these men & women. Show trials have their appeal, and offer a pretty good public catharsis. Just like the sex offender registry, I'm in favor of an economic idiot registry. Let's say you were one of the crew who abandoned common sense in a chance for more & faster money. Let's get your name onto a registry so that when you apply for a new job after your company tanks, or your last bonus is somehow pitifully reduced to less than $1 million, your new employer will have the opportunity to check the public data base & see what your contribution has been.

why not go up to Massachusetts, snag some stocks and lock the scofflaws in them, taking care to position them in the most public intersection of any town.
