Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Switching to CSPAN Washington Journal call-in show:

"Huge blow to capitalism in America"

"A remarkable fall from grace (Merrill)"

"Our money is falling through a sieve"

"This is unfettered capitalism (not said in a NICE way)"

A definite sense of excitement/anxiety in everyone.

They tried to assimilate me. They failed.

Why is nobody saying 'huge blow to market fundamentalism'?

The Washington Consensus finally eats its own...

People bringing up similarities to the '20's Great Depression.

People are REALLY ON this A.M.  Not the usual hicks from Tenn, Ala, Miss., W. Vir. etc.

They tried to assimilate me. They failed.

"The bank melt-down"

"Our govt. is running this big corporate welfare show.  The people need to STORM the Capitol Building"  "I'm scared!"

I LOVE IT!

They tried to assimilate me. They failed.

Whaa...???

This is the Black Monday of the Crash of 2008. But remember the stock market continued to slide (though it didn't crash again) for several years after 1929.

Back to Squawk Box:

People looking to the DOW to see what's next.

Drop your socks and grab your cocks, we're going to a party!

They tried to assimilate me. They failed.
