GOLDMAN SACHS

                                                                                           
   So much to consider reading the Op-Ed in today's Times from the Goldman Sachs banker who leaves the firm
   in disgust while spitting at it publicly on his way out the door. This piece puts in play matters of business
   culture, integrity, greed, honesty [or a notable lack thereof], and the fundamental consideration of customers.
 
   While reading, the foremost thought in my mind: How much spinning in a grave is possible? 
   
   What would Marcus Goldman [above], who founded his company in 1869 make of this Op-Ed?
   What would he think and what would he say if he could read the words below from someone who was
   once a Goldman true believer, but now describes the firm this way:
      
   "Today, if you make enough money for the firm (and are not currently an ax murderer) you will be promoted into a position of influence."
