All the Devils are Here

I’m going to lay in bed and watch The Wire tonight. It’s not nearly as fun, but, if you’re looking for something to watch, here’s video of Jon Stewart interviewing the authors of the new book All the Devils Are Here: The Hidden History of the Financial Crisis. I’m not incredibly knowledgeable when it comes to obscure financial instruments like credit default swaps, but Stewart does a pretty good job of conveying the important stuff. Maybe it’s due to the fact that his brother, Larry Leibowitz, is the COO of the New York Stock Exchange, but I think Stewart understands the financial markets better than almost any other television host out there today. But, like I said, I don’t really know what I’m talking about when it comes to this stuff… OK, now I’m going to go and watch Omar Little be a badass… Goodnight.

Those of you who find this a bit too intellectual for your tastes, might prefer something else instead.

    I thought that this post was going to be about pitted prunes stuffed with mango chutney and wrapped in bacon.

    Leibowitz looks enough like Stewart that it’s kind o f creepy.

    I’ll take The Wire, thanks. That one detective (McNulty?) is HAWT! Amirite, ladies?

    We need to come up with a food item like Devil on Horseback, which is what I believe you were referring to, Knox, called DEVIL ON ASS HOOK.

    I’d give anything to see Omar on The Real Housewives of NJ! Can you imagine it?
