Sunday Roundup

This week, Obama's pay czar announced he'd be slashing executive pay at seven of the biggest recipients of bailout billions. So it's no surprise that many of Wall Street's Masters of the Universe didn't turn up at the New York fundraiser President Obama spoke at -- choosing instead to attend a party thrown to toast the release of Too Big To Fail, Andrew Ross Sorkin's blow-by-blow account of the meltdown. There, enjoying cocktails and finger food, were many of the central players, including Jamie Dimon of JP Morgan and John Mack of Morgan Stanley. Which is kind of like Hannibal Lecter showing up for the opening of Silence of the Lambs. Perhaps they take comfort in Sorkin's assessment that when it comes to reforming Wall Street "the Obama administration seems to have moved on to other priorities." I need a drink.
