Vampire Squid Boss: Welcome to Our Lair

After almost 2 years of hiding from the press while every other investment bank CEO soldiered on, Goldman Sucks' Lloyd Blankfein decided on Wednesday to promote his warm, fuzzy side to CNBC (where he was given a pass) and later to Bloomberg TV (a slightly rougher ride).  Herewith, the latter interview with the man who was "doing God's work" (his words) selling "crap" (his employee's description) to GS clients - and then taking positions against them (for their own good, of course).  Note the absence of arrogance, except perhaps in his body language.  Oh, and Lloyd, I think you meant "prophylaxis" - not "prophylactics".
