Bernie started reading the paper with his coffee today and all of a sudden tossed it across the room. The paper. Bernie would never toss coffee. He’s got a great arm, by the way, pitched for Army a long time ago. Baseball’s coming soon – that’s a good feeling. There are lots of good feelings in life! 

Where was I? Oh, yeah. Bernie tossed away the paper and said, “AIG’s paying bonuses? Four hundred and fifty million in bonuses?” He sounded really angry. Don’t know what AIG is but I do know bonuses, because once after we’d gotten paid for bringing in some perp – Junior Mendez, in fact, maybe a story for another time – Bernie’d said, “You’ve earned a bonus,” and he’d given me a huge biscuit. So a bonus is a kind of treat you get for doing good work. Four hundred and fifty million – no idea what that is, but probably a big number. Four hundred and fifty million dog biscuits: those AIG dudes must  be doing great work. Good job, guys!

    "And much it grieved my heart to think/What man has made of man." William Wordsworth wrote that in a poem in the Nineteenth Century. Humans don't change, Chet, and never seem to learn.

    People should follow your example and not go beyond the number 2. As you have said, "2 is plenty." So if AIG had paid 2 bonuses or paid 2 million in bonuses, it wouldn't have made the papers and wouldn't have upset Bernie and others. They should have stopped at 2.
