Summertime Blues on Wall Street

Okay, I'm not gonna write a whole bunch about this because you need to read the original article and some of the hilarious reactions to it. On Friday, CNBC's John Carney published an article called Summertime Blues on Wall Street. It basically details some of the angst going around the Street these days in the wake of the Whale and other high-profile screw-ups lately. It's written pretty tongue-in-cheek (as Carney is wont to do), but it really got legs over the weekend with the Occupy crowd - most notably the Huffington Post with their hilarious send-up entitled Goldman Employee Struggles with Inability to Regularly Visit Summer Home.

Enjoy the articles and take them in good humor (which is at least how Carney's is meant). But realize also that this probably isn't the best time to be cry-assing to journalists about how bad bankers have it these days. There's not a lot of sympathy out there with the economy in the shitter, unemployment up, and the GDP expected to drop.

Here's hoping some "crazy guy" in London or Paris or Jakarta doesn't crater your bonus this year!
