Will some kind soul please come over here and help pick my jaw up off the floor? I was just watching television (oy) and saw an interview with the widow of a Cantor-Fitzgerald mucky-muck who died in the WTC attack, arguing that it’s not fair for all families of survivors to get equal compensation since some people “worked harder and were worth more.” Jesus fucking Christ on a breadstick. All I can think sitting here is: As horribly as her husband died, at least he missed dealing with this venal bitch come alimony time.

UPDATE: It’s January and Salon has done an interesting, albeit rather bloodless, piece on the problem.
