March 17 (Bloomberg) -- U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley said he wants “contrition” from executives of insurer American International Group Inc. for their company’s problems, after earlier saying they should follow Japanese tradition and “resign or go commit suicide.”
“Of course, I don’t want anybody to go commit suicide, but I do want some contrition,” Grassley, an Iowa Republican, said today in a Bloomberg Television interview.
Now, what I want to know is, Why the hell not, Mr Grassley, why would you backpedal on this?!? Absolutely they should commit Seppuku! With a dirty garden trowel, even!
