Heck, the Euro-Brits over at FT know how to deal with a little French complication.

Maybe an encouraging word in the Lex column can send the S&P up another hundred points.

No problem, a quick crunch of the numbers reveals we have a 32.333% (repeating of course) chance of survival.

It's all in good fun- I took way too much French in high school and college, and it never, ever gets used.  Probably reads like pigdin at this point.  Any excuse to justify wasting all those hours...

The waste problem is not that it doesn't get used.  The problem is that it's French.

Chinese is now more popular amongst language students.

Can't blame them. Chinese culture is far superior to french culture.

Well Moynihan just mentioned on Kudlow that "Bank is America is sufficiently capitalized and will not be impacted by the contagion should it arise out of Europe"..

Note: He did not say BOA does not have exposure to Europe... Probably ML has more history associated with its hey days...

Nor did he say Customers will get access to their online banking by endof day today.. :( :(

put together it means only one thing.. BAC is a deer with headlights reflecting in its eyes..

Just returned from Bank of America where I closed an sizeable account open for quite a few years.  I waited while three other people did the same thing.

"¿ Why are you closing your account ?" the "Personal Banker" asks.

My sugar-coated response: "Your fee structure is crazy, Your stock price is crashing, your website is crashed, the bank is up to its blind eyeballs in derivatives, and I am skeptical that BofA is 'too big to fail.' I want to get out while the getting is good."  

Personal Banker responds with a  Wince, a painful grimace, a long contorted look of absolute bowel-driven agony and then.... "Well the Show Must Go On.  ¿ How would you like your money, in 20's or hundred's ?"

My response: "I will take whatever is on sale."  Account closed.  FIve people waiting behind me, no doubt attempting to do the same thing. 

Must just be a coincidence.

Unfortunately the fuckers have my mortgage so I can't close everything.

Unfortunately if you just read the words, they have all US citizens mortgages.

I really wish Bill would have done bawney back in the day (instead of monica)  and not had time to refresh the American Comunity Improvement Act.

Again, if you only read words, history will say Bill Clinton was the last president to create a national surplus. He just sold our land to the IMF and our Jobs to a giant sucking sound.

They probably do not have your mortgage, they just service the loan -- just like they do mine (Freddie or Fannie owns my mortgage).

I can't shake this nagging feeling that it's a hell of a good contrarian trade to go long BAC these days- not all-in, of course, but it might be worth risking a little in a side pocket.

Time will tell.  I'm not acting on it, just got that little whisper in the back of my mind.  Sometimes that little whisper is right.

What took you so goddam long?  I left Regions and went to my local S&L (top rated) 2 years ago!  I see Regions has just imposed a truckload of new account and card fees.   They can burn in hell with all the rest of 'em for all I care.
