Bailout goes belly up

The big bailout package has gone toes-up and there are smarter people than me on the site who can tell you the big high falutin’ meaning of it all.

Many of us just want to pull the covers up , stuff a pillow over our head, and maybe dream that somewhere it’s still “the way it used to be.”

One disclaimer. This piece was actually produced last April, back when the feds thought they had the mortgage crisis “contained,” although I can’t remember if that was the first time they had it contained, or the second time.
