I understand that the situation is difficult, but allowing Wall Street firms to sell that toxic waste bonds and derivatives to the Fed or the US Treasury is just obscene.

Just about any other solution is better. 700 Billion is a enormous number. Give that to the taxpayers, and let them catch up on their mortgages or debt or whatever. Let’s try a gigantic stimulus package BEFORE the taxpayers buy a bunch of garbage.

Or really do the Resolution Trust Solution. Seize insolvent firms and then manage the orderly unwinding of these toxic derivatives.


Please stand firm against this Big Government solution.

Me? Spam?

For a while blogger/blogspot was making me fill in a CATCHA to make sure I was human to post to my own blog.  I believe the reason was because many of my posts were a few short sentences with typically one link.  Something like, "I need to look into technology blah, because it could help out blah blah."  I didn't really understand this until I went to use Microsoft's Live Writer product and post to blogspot.  It failed with an error message that directed me to a request a human review my blog.  That all occurred and now I can post from from Live Writer.  In fact, this post is using Live Writer.

Here's an interesting OpenSearch tag set on, which I need to investigate further.  And perhaps add a search or two related to it.  I believe this is one of those web 2.0 sites using social bookmarking.  It's apparently implemented in Ruby on Rails, which is cool.

Reddit personalized page

Reddit is a kind of social bookmarking service that allows you to keep and rank links.   Everyone sees all the links and ranks them, so there's a democratic effect of measuring links and sites.  Here's my Reddit home page.

Microsoft Live Writer

Testing the Writer application which is a blog editor.  Although I was aware that such things existed, I had never used one.  This one seems straightforward and simple and works with a variety of blog sites and tools:  blogger, live spaces, typepad, and wordpress.  Seems cool so far.
