Bank Problems

Reading the newspaper and online articles about the investment/banking meltdown has almost been a surreal experience. If you look close enough you can see the dominoes slowly tumble, a plethora of fingers point in all directions, and the vultures circle the remains. During the beginning I was wondering if we still had a President. Bush was mum on the entire thing. I could imagine him acting like the three monkeys, just praying that this is a bad dream. Unfortunately it is not, and the people trying to get his attention are not the lowly nobodies that he can usually ignore. I hope I am wrong, but I suspect that we are just seeing the tip of the iceberg and everyday the news reveals just how more rotten the entire thing is.

Is this a surreal vision? One could hope and pray it is as they join Bush in his simian contemplation, but I fear it is not.
