Jr Deputy Accountant

Tourre was not the bad guy, I feel like he was merely trying to showboat to his girlfriend in emails to make his work sound cooler and more mysterious than it was to get a piece of tail. And then he gets strung up like the bad guy as the target of the populace's misplaced Goldman rage while the GS rats go back to business as usual and find the next sucker to blame their bad behavior on. Pathetic.

I agree with you that outsiders need to bite their tongues and be sure their anger is properly placed and within reason. Of course that's a tough sell when everyone is angry about the state of things these days and most have absolutely no idea who they should be angry at so they just pick the closest and most obvious target. In this case, that's our little fresh-faced Fab. I don't feel sorry for him, surely he knew what he was doing and got off on the thrill of being a dirty Goldman rat just as critics get off on bashing him as a result.
