Barry from The Big Picture jokes: "Hey, I took the week off -- what did I miss?"
Well, I am a fool who actually took the week off (in a part of the world with extremely limited Internet / Blackberry access). So what did I miss in poetic form? (note: this is coming directly from 18 hours of return travel so my sense of humor is
somewhat completely out of whack)
- Lehman failed, wasn't bailed
- AIG is still alive, a taxpayer credit line of 85
- Morgan Stanley + Wachovia Bank, makes no sense but encouraged by Hank
- A bailout larger than the war with Iraq, a socialist government that has the rich man's back
