Over at FedSmith there is a brief analysis of the bailout bill that was passed. It's still awful.
By the way, my web wanderings have led me to several commentators suggesting bank holiday and bank runs coming to a branch near you in the next week or so. All rumor as far as I can tell. I do know that my IRA (a rather puny creature) took a 15% hit and its current value is now below what I actually deposited. I'll be chatting with Chase about options, I don't want to keep on losing money.
