As much as I hate fees, this one is about 80 million Times anything I've had to pay. Turbabout is fair play?

Isn't that the same Jamie Dimon who told a journalist, "Average journalist salary is only $31,000. What does that tell you? There are too many journalists."

I'd say there are too many quasi-legitimate, ethics deprived 'suits' whose compensation packages are way out of whack to the value they bring to their employers.
