I was analyzing a relative's exposure to AIG but then $85 billion happened. Which means that, for tonight anyway, I can go back to Moi regularly-scheduled programming of amusing moiself, to wit:

Ain't it great how Poetry is the one industry insulated from the current economic crisis? Bear Stearns can tumble. Lehman can tumble. Merrill Lynch can tumble. AIG is tottering. Etcetera etcetera. But said crises ain't significantly affecting the sales of poetry books...

'Twas nada mucho before. 'Tis nada mucho now.

The poetry publisher has spoken.

The poetry publisher shall now raise the goblet of wine...
