On top of the cuts it made less than two weeks back, Goldman Sachs has reportedly stripped another bunch of employees of their ID cards, at gs dot com addresses, and sense of purpose (a Goldman-size paycheck) in this world. And no, they weren't allowed to take the gold-plated casing their genitals were sheathed in upon accepting the offer at the firm, and which had to be painfully removed upon departure. If you run into one of your friends from GS out East this weekend, likely drinking since Wednesday, don't say anything: just go in for the hug and promise us you won't be the first one to let go.

Goldman Sachs Group Inc. dismissed about 60 traders and salesmen in New York and London this week, according to a person briefed on the matter. The cuts, which come on top of at least 353 others in New York this year, affect employees in fixed-income and equities, said the person.
