When the walls come a-tubling down…first Greece, now Ireland. And I’m long on Spain, then France, and God help ‘em when the Germans finally come unglued. Musical tribute to the zeitgeist here, here and here. Oh, and though it may fluctuate wildly, the Euro will stay up about as well as grandma’s underpants. Honestly, a trillion dollars worth of financial viagra, and this is all we get?!?!
Your gentle blogger can barely go about the day without being interrupted by the computer screaming something. I’ll need to vacation in a non-rioting locale and those are getting harder to come by.

Banks protesters storm Irish parliament
Protesters have stormed parliament during a march against government plans to inject billions of euros into the country’s banks.
Dozens of people broke away from the march and ran at the gates of the parliament’s main building, Leinster House.
They wrestled with police, who tried to force them back and secure the gate.
At least one man suffered a head injury during the scuffles with organisers appealing for calm.
