    Mar 3 2011: After reading TOO BIG TO FAIL by Sorkin and THE BIG SHORT by Michael Lewis, I'm anxiously awaiting to see the Oscar winning documentary "INSIDE JOB". Then I will wait for some Wall Street crooks to go to jail.

    Then I'll watch GASLAND while the NY regulators are debating the new regs on gas drilling. Then I will wait for radioactive waste water to contaminate the ground water and local water wells.
