Speaking of Complacency: Wall Street Villains

Below is a list from Rob Kelly's blog, which he took from Jason Witt's Financial Crisis Most-Wanted Playing Cards (modelled on the Bush administration's Iraqi Most-Wanted card deck).

I'm not sure everyone belongs, nor am I sure others shouldn't be added. I will be working on this from time to time. In the meantime, I welcome suggestions for additions or deletions. Obviously, Ace of Spades - Bernard Madoff - can be struck off the list because he is already behind bars for a long time.
