Neither Warren Buffett nor myself think or want it to come to this (the sex machine and I like our Fed Chairmen soft-spoken, bearded, and outfitted by Jos A.

Back to playing D&D with his academics? We already know Greenspan's rescinded his letters of recommendation for the cushy lecture circuit on account of Bernankle's attempt to pin some of the blame for the shit that's gone down on The Maestro.
