"The SEC report describes an e-mail in which an analyst refers to the market for collateralized debt obligations as a ``monster.''
``Let's hope we are all wealthy and retired by the time this house of cards falters,'' said the e-mail, which was sent Dec. 15, 2006, to another analyst at the same firm. "

But this is probably pushing it further than I would look favorably upon.
