    In my experience, all to some of the things described here happens at most small private companies with heavy ties to the founders (as execs) usually at smaller scales.

    From the linked article.

    When stuff like that happens at a bank, wall street or at congress, nobody cares. In fact, its expected.

    If it happens anywhere else, its news worthy?

    But, but,,, shouldn't the wall street bankers and congress be held to the same standards as everyone else?

    Didn't the wall street banks ask for a bail out in 2008, and then give their employees multimillion dollar bonuses funded by tax payers?

    But when CompUSA/TigerDirect executives figure out a way to make a few million extra dollars, its posted all over the news?

    I think I see a double standard in the news.
