    As much as this enrages me, I guess I shouldn't be that surprised. These executives "cut the fat" (read: laid-off employees), so they deserve their bonuses.

    After all, this is the American way, right?

    Yes it is the good old American way and I would not trade it for any other place, like everything, not perfect.

    Doesn't mean change is not warranted.

    There was a time when not letting blacks and women vote were part of the "good old American way".

    Why you throw gender and race cards into this???? We are talking about pay and compensation here, not civil rights.

    Wow, you really need to not take this stuff so personally. No need in raising the BP, friend.

    I am just curious, why you brought up those issues? Who says my BP is rising? Have you measured it? Oh, yes, your psychic powers at work! I forgot

    Back to topic...was this pay commensurate with job performance?

    Talent follows the money.

    The UC regents board is obviously afraid that if the compensation isn't high enough, they might end up losing the talent to someone else willing to compensate higher. If neither the regents board nor the people receiving the bonuses don't care that people lost their jobs so that bonuses could be handed out, who should?
