Do It, Frank. Get Angry.

We realize that there's probably some technical reasoning behind this, but the whole letter-writing campaign between Andrew Cuomo and Barney Frank, re: AIG bonuses, when they're you know, on the same side and could just pick up the phone, seems to merely serve as a means to get each other further riled up. (Which we don't have a problem with, but just wanted to point out.) Anyway, in their latest correspondence, Mary Thompson reports that Cuomo whipped out his quill to tell Frank that 11 people who've received "retention" bonuses for last year have already left the firm, 73 were made millionaires as a result of the cash prizes, the top seven got at least $4 million each, the top ten got $42 million total, and the top 22 received more than $2 million each.
