The question isn't just who received the bonus, or what were previous bonus amounts that were dispensed, but what was the bonus for?
Were they rewards for job performance? What standards had to be met to qualify one for a 25% share of $121,000,000?
Makes me wonder what the bonuses would have been if Merrill Lynch had a successful and profitable year. If they give out $1.4 billion to reward failure, just imagine what success would bring!

One disturbing question that must be answered is whether Merrill Lynch and Bank of America timed the bonuses in such a way as to force taxpayers to pay for them through the deal funding. .

Um here - let me answer this question for the courts so they don't have to spend even more of my hard earned money on a ridiculous investigation.
