Amazing that it's taken this long.  I can't believe they suspended the circus act this long.  The unwind of this last bubble of bubbles will be incredible.

Not so fast, they wound it back up last time. No saying they won't do it again.

This is the stock the Cramer said to buy 6 weeks ago. He hated the stock but said to buy it anyway. It had Mo. What a loser.

Somebody knows something, to pay that much up. Even on Ambac.

Either that or a German Landesbank auditor just told senior management what exactly is in the books, where it should be marked at, and how many yards are at stake. This of course is unlikely.
