Big news coming in London, but the exchange is supposed to open as usual. Big bailout in Germany. Hank has decided to use his $700 billion to buy preferred shares. Surprise. Not. I'm waffling between, did he just pull a Tar Baby? and Judas Priest he really _is_ stupid enough to argue against something that once he had it he realized was really pretty cool and useful. Which is the standard dilemma associated with any attempt to understand what this administration is doing: Are They Really That Stupid? Or Are They Really That Criminal? Will we ever know?
ETA: Oh, and a couple more bank failures.
