Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Not to mention that the high powered investors that are bailed out are mostly "their guys."  That is why I am taking the hit of inflation and leaving my paltry retirement savings in "cash."  Most investments promising reasonable yields are at risk for substantial haircuts, with the benefit accruing to those same underwater "high powered investors."
