That's exactly what I'm thinking. That's why I'm so dumbfounded. I don't think anyone is naive enough to think that the first wave will be the last.

200 bill for Fannie and Freddie
30 for Bear Stearns
85 for AIG
even more for Lehman

It's already over 300 and probably close to 375.

I missed something in the last day or two. They're now bailing out Lehman?
