This is one of my favorite Monty Python skits and this mortgage mess reminds me of it. The Fed, the Gov, the SEC were prancing up and down the street pecking at the banks with a sardine without having any real effect upon the situation. Suddenly, they get clobbered with a large Salmon and off the deep end they go....

When Bear Sterns went down, they should have taken it more serious. Instead, they spent the summer trying to convince us nothing is wrong...or to paraphrase Chief Joseph or maybe it was Chief Ouray who said, "The President may be smart, but he sure has a lot of bald headed liars working for him.."

Great minds think alike, that's one of my favorites, too. If you get a chance to see Spamalot, go.

I pictured Cleese as the Fed. Knocking over banks. :leeann2:

Apparently it's a CEO's job to say, right up until the end,
"Everything's fine. Be poised, don't cry."
They all do it. :shrug:
