NYTimes: Why Greece’s Lenders Need to Suffer

chock full of nuggets of insight…

The bailout represented a transfer of wealth from the rest of the economy into the bond market — precisely the opposite of what is supposed to happen. Now, in the moral hand-wringing over Greece and its failure to pay, we see that bondholders expect to be bailed out constantly, even when they were obviously culpable in failing to manage their own risk. The various European Union plans for Greece involve what is essentially a transfer of wealth from poor Greek people to wealthy German bondholding institutions.
We should worry about an economic system that punishes borrowers but not the institutions that made risky loans to them in the first place.

Sometimes I really do just hate the human race.  More than that, I hate what money can do.
A ranger at Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe has been accused of accepting a £36,000 bribe from a Spanish hunter who killed one of Africa's most famous lions.

Seriously ... when was the last time a liberal / progressive secular humanist went on a mass killing spree?
