A colleague notices that the New York Fed has released some details on the Bear Stearns bailout, which is probably a little bit important considering the public could end up footing the bill if things go south. The whole situation is a bigger mess than Ishtar and Waterworld combined (a movie which, okay, I'd actually like to see), but I tend to think skepticism, of whatever sort, is a far more appropriate a reaction than the "Bernanke is my kind of guy" Fed-love we're seeing in some quarters.
