Sorry: his visa, amex, mastercard, and whatever credit card through the company he is carrying. he should have no access to funds, private, corporate, or otherwise. that's what I meant. And yes, his passport too.

Look at his picture for this article. Remember the movie "A Few Good Men"? Looks just like him! Guilty in the movie, guilty here.

Too little entitlement, Too much reward for achievement. don't ask the lazy for anything, ask them what you owe them.

One would think that as very well-paid CEOs of mid-to-large sized corporations (making $500K > several Millions, before bonuses & stock options, per year!) that this level of compensation would be fulfilling. But, apparently not... an arrogant, egomaniacal, weasel mentality seems to overcome 7 out of 10 of these greed-mongers. Disgusting! Let them twist in the wind.

Somehow, this guy will avoid prison, remain rich and he'll spend the rest of his days drinking top shelf liquor and getting comps at the Bellagio. That's how this country works...CEO's of crooked (Petters) or failing companies (see Northwest Airlines, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, etc.) get to leave with millions while the people doing the actual work get hosed. Sadly, this will never change.
