Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
That fits right in with other mysteries, like:
How could Elliot Spitzer have been that stupid?

Greg Palast:

While New York Governor Eliot Spitzer was paying an `escort' $4,300 in a hotel room in Washington, just down the road, George Bush's new Federal Reserve Board Chairman, Ben Bernanke, was secretly handing over $200 billion in a tryst with mortgage bank industry speculators.

Both acts were wanton, wicked and lewd. But there's a BIG difference. The Governor was using his own checkbook. Bush's man Bernanke was using ours.

Capitalism searches out the darkest corners of human potential, and mainlines them.
