The U.K.'s Times reports that Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein, he of "doing God's work" fame, is set to receive a record bonus
of $100 million for making lots of money when everybody else was losing
it. That, despite public outrage and Obama's berating generous bank
bonuses as "shameful," though we'd add "obscene."  

"This is Lloyd thumbing his nose at Obama," said
a banker at the World Economic Forum at Davos.
