Remember this day

Man flies across the English channel, and makes it to safety. Crazy, brave, inventive, well-planned risk for one person and his family, adventurous, safe, Rocket Man.

After all the crashes and take-overs and proposed bail-outs of the past weeks, now WaMu crashes and is bought out by JP Morgan Chase. Biggest ever banking failure in the USA. Economy in crisis, fueled by all those sub-prime mortgages sold off to people and institutions who could not care less about real people. Stupid, cowardly, greedy, insecure risk-taking with everyone's homes, families and livelihoods.

A day of contrasts.
