Just Once

Fantastic Rolling Stone article about the recent banking meltdown and the lack of arrests made.

“You put Lloyd Blankfein in pound-me-in-the-ass prison for one six-month term, and all this bullshit would stop, all over Wall Street,” says a former congressional aide. “That’s all it would take. Just once”

Reminds me of this classic George Carlin quote from Back In Town:

And I’ll guarantee you one thing. You start execute you start nailing one white banker per week to a big wooden cross, you’re going to see that drug traffic begin to slow down pretty fucking quick. Pretty fucking quick- you won’t even be able to buy drugs in schools and prisons anymore!
