The problem is, of course, that these data points continue to be alarming. Consider the top 2 from this morning's news run:
1. UBS and Swiss bankers being issued a "John Doe Summons" in order to unearth Americans with "secret" banking accounts (i.e. Tax Fraud)??
2. Legg Mason "entering agreements to protect 3 money market funds"??
Without wasting any more keystrokes, I think you can come to your own conclusions on how dire the state of affairs has become in this country.
