Robert Preston, Finance Reporter for the BBC on his blog: "For Wall Street, it has probably been the most extraordinary 24 hours since the late 1920s." Of course the 20's led to the 30's and to FDR. What new models of private enterprise, government, and philanthropy will emerge? Perhaps, from the death of the once triumphal Free Market ideology will emerge a community of communities more local, intimate, caring, and spiritual, if materially poorer. Or maybe, when you peek through the curtains you will see the boys from Blackwater in the vans with fish symbols and flags. Catastrophe and Resiliance? The end of history marked the beginning of time. In our arrogance, Lord, did thou find sport?
I'd settle for an end to criminal governance.
