Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I saw that.

The good thing is that this is going to, hopefully, put a hold on the possibility of contagion.

The better thing is that I think that Goldman Sachs just got burnt bad.  I suppose that could be bad depending on how Goldman Sachs tries to play this out.

While it would be beautiful if Goldman Sachs bit the dust, the big question is what they are connected to.  I guess the threat of contagion isn't over just yet then.

Unfortunately, Goldman is connected to Giethner and Summers at the hip, or higher. But it still has to be determined that Goldman will not succeed in staring down both the US and the EU. At least it appears that Mervin King has at least some backbone. Guess I should check the market close today.  I have been having all together too much fun replacing tile above the tub/shower.
