So, if like me you find that you're pissed off about the whole debacle and the fact that you feel like you need to support some fat-cat's effed up mistake, educate.
I didn't understand why, I still don't believe that it's a good reason why... but I understand now...
"Commercial paper" seized up - and no one was willing to lend to any one because we 'broke the buck'

it won't alleviate your frustration - but hopefully you won't feel as bewildered.
