“When you listened to him (Treasury Secretary Paulson) describe it you gulped," said Senator Charles E. Schumer, Democrat of New York.
As Senator Christopher J Dodd, Democrat of Connecticut and chairman of the Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee, put it Friday morning on the ABC program “Good Morning America,” the congressional leaders were told “that we’re literally maybe days away from a complete meltdown of our financial system, with all the implications here at home and globally.”
Mr. Schumer added, “History was sort of hanging over it, like this was a moment.”
When Mr. Schumer described the meeting as “somber,” Mr. Dodd cut in. “Somber doesn’t begin to justify the words,” he said. “We have never heard language like this.”
Congratulations to Dan Lurvey and Andrea (Andy) Cunill for their JOA this week representing a Police Officer before Judge Orlando Prescott. Well done. The officer was charged with the very very serious crime of failure to obtain Worker's Compensation Insurance for his private security company. My lord. If a rash of these crimes continue the very fabric of society may render. Thank goodness we have a State Attorney sharp enough not to look the other way in these exceptionally serious cases.
