Michael O'Hare watches Frontline's Heat: "I kept saying to myself as I watched this show, and watched the lords of Wall Street amid their own wreckage the last few weeks, is that these guys seem to absolutely suck at what they do! Without a Niagara of public welfare payments and public protection from the marketplace they profess to worship, they can't make a dime on a long-term basis nor build enduring enterprises. What a bunch of overpaid jerks. It wasn't just the government being trashed by smirking, self-satisfied incompetents prating ideological nonsense these last couple of decades, it was our whole industrial and financial leadership class."
