I enjoyed Mortimer B. Zuckerman's "Wall Street's Day of Reckoning" [September 29-October 6]. Although I'm an accounting major with a B.A. degree, I could not fully grasp the enormity of the financial crisis. I think the CEOs should be held criminally liable for their mismanagement.

I take exception to Zuckerman's concurrence with Woody Brock of Strategic Economic Decisions about greed being unchangeably rooted in human nature. Without a doubt, the Wall Street meltdown proves that a subclass of humans is immorally greedy, but also among us are the police, the firefighters, the schoolteachers, and, of course, the members of the armed forces, who choose careers not for dreams of obscene material wealth but for truly human motives. Is it also human nature that the supergreedy come to the rest of us to keep them in their McMansions?
