  • In a first, FDIC files a D&O lawsuit against IndyMac directors.

  • I only thought hedge funds wanted to bet on hurricanes.
  • I was a bit skeptical – rightly, it turns out – about all those Toyota accidents, recalling my days in Florida. Every day the paper had a story about an older driver who hit the gas instead of the brake. One poor guy drove off a drawbridge, but made it to the other side, just like James Bond.
