The loop around city hall is really scary. I bike it everyday on my way to work and vascilate between terror and surprise that such a high-profile area would be so poorly designed.

it is depressing how little followup the news media does about stories like this. like, who was this poor fellow, where was he coming from, where was he going, had he been drinking, etc. etc. it is as though he wasn't a real person.

Why was there no follow on bankruptcy then? The bailout of AIG FP went to (wow power leveling) hedge funds that bound credit swaps on Lehman failing or others betting on rating (wow power leveling) declines. AIG has drained over 100 billion from the government. Which had to go to those who bet on failures and downgrades. Many of whom (power leveling)were hedge funds. I-banks that had offsetting swaps needed the money from the AIG bailout or they would have been caught. Its an (wow powerleveling) insiders game and it takes just a little bit too much time for most people to think (wow gold) through where the AIG 100 billion bailout money went to, hedge funds and players, many of whom hire from the top ranks of DOJ, Fed, Treasury, CAOBO
