"I would suggest the first thing that would make me feel a little bit better toward them if they'd follow the Japanese example and come before the American people and take that deep bow and say, I'm sorry, and then either do one of two things: resign or go commit suicide." That was Sen. Charles Grassley yesterday on AIG's $165 million in bonuses after receiving federal bailout. Locally, protests have been taking place outside AIG's office in downtown. Another one is scheduled for 4 p.m. this afternoon, reports blogdowntown.
