I'm a dad x 2!

On the off chance anyone reads this blog, my apologies for not posting yesterday. I was at the hospital all day helping my wife deliver a healthy (6 lbs., 15 oz.) baby girl! Mother and daughter went through a (relatively) short but exceptionally painful ordeal. Labor progressed too fast relative to (slow) hospital procedures for my wife to get an epidural, so she delivered “the old fashioned way.” She was heroic!

In my brief web surfing this morning, Time’s article on credit default swaps caught my eye. Haven’t read much of it (yet), but you can’t learn enough about CDSes because they’re the catalyst that turned a bad economy into a potential Great Depression and a giant vacuum sucking taxpayer dollars into financial firms.
