Get this-- former Merrill chief Stan O'Neal, who left the building with $163 million in cash, stock and stock options, along with several staplers and copies of Microsoft Office (which, in fairness, aren't that cheap and are probably worth stealing, if you can), was actually supposed to receive a (proposed) additional $45 million in severance but didn't, 'cause the board said no dice. So, basically, the lil' guy was robbed. And, we think, at the very least, should get to keep the 163 being contested in Congress today.
