The Carlyle Group has had a pretty nice return as of late. I wonder if they could cover things.

I tried, but I could not laugh.

Consider that a down-payment, Potomac Avenue. If you want to reach 2900, you should work in a field that gets sort of slow in the summer.

I'm torn on what to say... A lot of me is "meh" but there's a little "whut" in there too.

Funniest website I've seen all day.

I think I totally qualify! I've lost 30% of my retirement assets in the last 3 months!

Or maybe I'm over qualified? I haven't lost all of my value yet.

This bailout is going to be the greatest carry trade of all time. No joke. This will get the government a better return than the FDIC bailout which was profitable for us. We borrow money for 1 or 2% and get a 12-15% return. While this site is supposed to be funny and it only marginally is, the concept is not far off. Henry Paulson found the only job bigger than his previous one at Goldman; He of the world's largest equity fund. God Bless him for that.
