Can Anyone Muster Sympathy for AIG Execs?

They may be America's great unloved, on par with lawyers, politicians and pedophiles. So is it possible to have sympathy for AIG executives?

The New York Times attempts to do so, or at least provide a glimpse of what life is like for these newly minted reprobates. It involves protests outside your spacious Connecticut home, bus tours of executive manses, bomb-sniffing dogs for hire and neighbors cursing your very existence. In the wealthier regions of New York and Connecticut, the private security business is booming.

On one hand, it would seem the natural and proper remedy for wealthy welfare queens sponging one last time on the public dime. Then again, don't you feel just a little sorry for these guys? Or are we at the Mighty Pith just turning soft?
