bankster vs deadbeat
Whenever I tried to talk to co-workers in the US about fraudulent bankers actively encouraging people to take out home loans they couldn't afford they'd often try to end the discussion with the "deadbeat" argument. This piece is really effective because the deadbeat concedes that from the start and focuses on the larger systemic damage done by the banks.

By the way, did you know Morgan Stanley is the largest processor of food stamps in the US? Oh the irony.
and now for something completely cute - a baby beluga whale with his mom
You may notice I've changed the template for the first time in 3½ years. Now I'll be able to post larger pictures and also have the occasional youtube selections show to size. Please let me know if you have any trouble looking at the new format.
Time marches on :-)
