Roubini on the Bear Stearns Bailout

BY

NYU Professor Nouriel Roubini is an outspoken pessimist on the health of the financial system, and I don't agree with all of his policy ideas.  No matter, he nails it with this explanation of the Federal Reserve/JP Morgan Chase/ Bear Stearns deal last weekend:

Ore. Candidate Repays Old Debts Before New Run

Kevin Mannix has paid off some old debts in preparation for a new campaign. Mannix is trying to fill the congressional seat that opened with the retirement of Rep. Darlene Hooley, D-Ore. The Salem Republican ran for attorney general and 2000 and governor in 2002 and 2006. He lost all three races and was left with hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign debts that were not paid off until he started considering this latest race.

Tuesday Morning Round Up

BY Melissa Murphy

A little Tuesday morning reading. And a bit of liberal blog linking. All in fun, of course. Suicide bombers are just misunderstood Now we're supposed to feel sorry for the men who go out and kill our troops and their fellow citizens because they're trying to get attention and gain their five seconds of fame. There's no amount of Oprah Winfrey or Dr. Phil to explain away, or sugar coat what these men do. It's despicable. (Via Yahoo News)
