Good to Be a Banksta

I've not planned to discuss the current world credit crisis in this weblog, because I don't really understand its causes or have any idea of how we can resolve it without starting another Great Depression. However, Tatsuya Ishida does a pretty good job interpreting the recent financial bailout vote in Congress, and guessing how long it will be before the surviving major banks and investment houses ask for another $700,000,000,000.

Meanwhile, for those interested in the forthcoming U.S. presidential election, the Daily Kos has a helpful comparative analysis of the two main presidential and two main vice-presidential candidates. (It's not terribly friendly to the Republican Party, but then the Daily Kos almost never is.)
