They're Traitors

February 18, 1990

I'm glad so many of these corporate raiders ("Where Have All the Raiders Gone?" Jan. 28) have fallen on hard times (being convicted of tax evasion and fraud, facing bankruptcy or having failed in recent takeover bids), as they have only gotten what they deserve. Instead of building up a company, all they care about is what they can take from it. Instead of "Robin Hoods" they should be called "Robbing Hoods," as they take from the middle class in order to give to themselves. They are not "corporate heroes" but only "corporate traitors."
