This short, intriguing and deeply disturbing New York Times piece talks about just how deeply insurer AIG, the parent company of Greensboro’s United Guaranty, is biting into the public teat. Yea, verily, blood is flowing and the flow thereof will not soon be stanched. Worse, the taxpayers’ money flowing through AIG to parties it insured is going in large quantities to some of the biggest creators of the mess in which we now find ourselves.

Relatedly, Felix Salmon suggests something we could do that, while it wouldn’t make us taxpayers whole, might well make us feel a tiny bit better.
