Did anyone watch FRONTLINE last night? I did and I was relieved to find out that some of my "crazy" thoughts are NOT crazy at all. I was also proud to learn about Brooksley Born - a lady who attended law school in the 60's when it wasn't very popular for women to attend law school. Faced with discrimination on all levels not only did she excel, she went on the be the lone wolf who gave warning to the government about non-regulation and "derivatives". But again she was faced with discrimination, not only because she was a woman, but she was not politically connected either - but she stood her ground - her warning went unheeded and here we are today. She warns again that the situation WILL NOT improve until REAL change is made.
So, I learned that my suspicions of the banking crisis being much more than meets the eye were pretty accurate and I learned the details of my suspicions.
It's times like this when I miss my cousin Robert "Kim" Massey the most. 28 years and I still miss him. He would have turned 54 on Oct. 19th. He is one of the few people who would not only entertain my "crazy" thoughts, he would encourage them. If Kim were still here I would have probably known the details before now...and I would probably be a lawyer by now.
Anyhow, you can watch it at http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/warning/.
