Ask not for whom the banks troll

If you want to get even more pissed about the financial mess we are in, read this story by Michael Lewis (Liar's Poker) and David Einhorn (a hedge fund operator). Everytime I think of these ridiculous attempts to prop up Wall Street while giving Main Street the finger (thank you, Henry Paulson) I get furious all over again. Why, as they ask, would you give the same people who got us into this mess by making risky loans billions more dollars to play with?

The two men who pulled this tale together for our disgusted reading know the world of high (low) finance very well. I'm eager to read the next installment.
