We'll have to watch the spread. I wonder if more people are jumping into treasuries because of this?

Many Wall Street executives says wrongdoing is necessary: survey

I pulled more money out of the bank today and after this and the latest PFG following MFG money vaporization. I am starting to wonder if any holding at Vanguard is safe. MMFs? ETFs? even Treasuries on account may be vaporized in a free for all.

Who knows?

Mr Slippery,

"The people that we deal with a lot on Wall Street are some of the most ethical people I know." - Jamie Dimon, CEO and chairman of JPMorgan Chase & Co.

Perhaps he's too busy to meet other people?

I have some confidence in my treasurydirect account, but I too am wondering about my Vanguard stuff...I keep thinking maybe I should move it all to USAA, on the theory that they wouldn't screw with the military.

VA hospital looks at possible cuts

Facing a $3.6 million budget cut for the next fiscal year, the Van Zandt VA Medical Center may downgrade its 24/7 emergency room to a center for urgent care that would be open only during business hours.

Please plan accordingly. Since most accidents happen in the home, please wear a life jacket when bathing outside of normal business hours.
