What will happen tomorrow morning?

It’s past 9 PM and it looks like Lehman will not have any help from the other financial companies.  Merrill Lynch seems to be approaching a deal with BoA which makes me laugh. Friday it looked like BoA might help… Continue Reading →

Rove should know about “truthiness”
