It occur to me on this Friday morning that it might have been better in the old days when there were duels of honor fought among gentlemen who accused each other of lying.
Ken Lewis, CEO of Bank of America and Ben Bernanke, head of the Federal Reserve ought to be meeting each other with drawn swords or pistols on some foggy morning in a field somewhere to resolve the issue of whether who's telling the truth about their meeting in December 2008 regarding whether BofA would go forward with the Merrill Lynch buyout. Ten paces, turn and fire.
A thought spawned by this Bernanke Denies Bullying Bank of America and BofA’s CEO: Fed pressured bank to buy Merrill.
"Did to!" "Did not!" Bang!
