Banks think taxpayer bailout is "unfair"

Would everyone please join me to weep for America's banks who have taken taxpayer money are unhappy that strings are attached?

The NYTs says this morning that they want to pay the money back early so they can be left alone. And as best I can discern from the whining, this is supposed to be a bad thing -- they we taxpayers get repaid early.

Nothing short of a full and unqualified apology from the Secretary of the Treasury will make them take more taxpayer money at bargain terms that none of us will ever get.

And absent that apology they are giving all the money back,.....except they can't.
