Are you homeless? Are you about to be homeless? Bet you're probably pretty upset about that. No? Not angry? Not bitter? Not in the mood to to kill a man? Well try this on for size. Ya see that absolutely gorgeous Tudor? 8 bedrooms, 6.5 baths, recently remodeled kitchen? You can't have it. Know who can? AIG employees. Is your blood boiling yet? I bet it is. What? No, no unscheduled stops. I told you to use the rest stop on the highway. I don't care if it's backed up.
The Connecticut Working Families party, which has support from organized labor, is planning a bus tour of A.I.G. executives' homes on Saturday, with a stop at the company's Wilton office.
"We're going to be peaceful and lawful in everything we do," Jon Green, the director of Connecticut Working Families, told The Times. "I know there's a lot of anger and a lot of rage about what's happened. We're not looking to foment that unnecessarily, but what we want to do is give folks in Bridgeport and Hartford and other parts of Connecticut who are struggling and losing their homes and their jobs and their health insurance an opportunity to see what kinds of lifestyle billions of dollars in credit-default swaps can buy."
