CNBC just interviewed a couple with the last name "Sinkin" who lost all their money to a criminal named Madoff who "made-off' with all their cash. Talk about sunk costs.

Neil Kashkari, aka "CashCarry" on the financial blogs, is handing out billions of taxpayer dollars to his Goldman Sachs (sacked) friends under the TARP, a word normally reserved for covering dead bodies. In this case, it's bad banks.

All of this is getting just a little bit too Dickensonian for me!!
