    Activists vent at AIG executives
    By MICHAEL P. MAYKO
    CONNECTICUT POST

    Hollywood has its bus tours of celebrity homes.

    New York City has its bus tours of mob hits.

    So why not pack a bus with community activists, invite a representative from every media organization in the free world and see the Fairfield County mansions of the "filthy rich and most recently infamous" -- American International Group executives. After all, these are the people who packed their wallets with millions in taxpayer bailout bonuses for helping take their company and the U.S. economy down the tubes, organizers said.

    And that's exactly what the Working Families Party and ACORN did Saturday morning.

    Indeed. This got how much coverage? Brighton Ct. got how much? 4:1 at least in the tea party favor.

    But at least CNN is noticing:

    Yeah, imagine the coverage if people were being paid to attend tea parties.
