The global financial crisis continues to attract letters to the editor. These are a selection as published by the SMH:

“Having just read about millions paid out in last-minute bonuses at Lehman Brothers, I feel sick. This year I have seen the super I have built up over a 35-year career junked by 40 per cent. I wonder how many others like me want to see some Armani-clad, iPhone-toting banker’s blood in the gutter, as some compensation at least?

At the least it’s fraud, and certainly it’s larceny. Go straight to jail. Confiscate the houses, art and helicopters.

Steve Asprey St Ives

Bonus: makes the four-letter word obsolete.
