so I'm not conversant in the world of finances. my only reflection on this banking debacle is that it's surely the final ingredient (think Iraq & Katrina & Supreme Court & loss of international respect) in keeping our current president at the bottom of history's list.

after writing this I realize that the title is misleading. the world of finance & investments & that sort of thing bores me. however for years I've been using money for art pieces. in fact I'm at work on a new project which shd be the final piece in a small book Current Seas. so money as symbol fascinates me.
