Spending my share of the AIG bailout

aig exec

The US government has, so far, given failed insurance giant AIG $180 billion. Let’s put this into concrete terms. That is $588 for every man, woman and child in the US.

If I had gotten my fair share I would have spent it all on my attire for the half marathon set for April 25 in Nashville. Here’s what I need for the big day: jogging outfit

I already bought the shoes, socks and shorts.  But can’t afford anything else.   I’ll be wearing my faded 1999 “Eat Dessert First” tee shirt and a garbage bag (if it rains). We’ll go to Whole Foods the night before and load up on the free samples they give out in the store.

Tell you what, let’s give a nice walking wardrobe to the AIG executives as a retention bonus this year instead of money. They have a lot of stress and they look like they need a good work out – no, make that a good working over!
