Vampire Squid

Having nothing to do at all with Wesley Wyndam-Pryce or any of the other kids at Angel Investigations, I can't help but post this quote from Matt Taibbi, in how he described the investment banking firm Goldman Sachs in his wonderful Rolling Stone article, "The Great American Bubble Machine". According to Taibbi,
The world's most powerful investment bank is a great vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity, relentlessly jamming its blood funnel into anything that smells like money.
You can find links to Taibbi's article in my Wolfram & Hart Hall of Fame blog post, "Goldman Sachs Corners the Bubble Market", along with a follow-up post, "Dishonor Among Thieves", in which I tongue-in-cheek hint that Charles Gunn may be representing a certain Russian immigrant.
