Obama Plans Exec Pay Overhaul » The Obama administration this week will call for increased oversight of executive pay at all banks, Wall Street firms and possibly other companies as part of a sweeping plan to overhaul financial regulation, government officials said. — International Herald Tribune

Ethics Rules Leave Top Spots Empty » To fight the old revolving-door culture, President Obama decreed that administration jobs could no longer be used as steppingstones to more-lucrative lobbying jobs.

A superstrict vetting process has weeded out or driven off some otherwise very qualified candidates. — Newsweek

JPMorgan Plans Jet Purchase » Embattled bank JPMorgan Chase, the recipient of $25 billion in TARP funds, is going ahead with a $138 million plan to buy two new luxury corporate jets, according to ABC News. A JPMorgan Chase spokesman said no TARP money would be used to make any payments for new jets or jet hangar improvements. — ABC News

Tardy Paperwork Can Be Deadly for Inmates » Three men on Texas' death row -- and six others already executed -- lost their federal appeals because attorneys failed to meet life-or-death deadlines, essentially waiving the last constitutionally required review before a death sentence is carried out. — Houston Chronicle
