Strange snippet in riot/protest news from London's pre-G20 summit this morning:

"Fearing they would be targeted by protesters, some bankers swapped their pinstripe suits for casual wear and others stayed home. Bolder financial workers leaned out their office windows Wednesday, taunting demonstrators and waving 10 pound notes at them."

WHAT?! Taunting an angry, violent mob with a symbol of greed and excess during a recession-gon-depression?! If that's not a death-wish, I don't know what is.
