Bailout Confuson -- All Over The Web (Salient Links)

By Stephen C. Rose

Each morning I dutifully post links from sites I value for their news sense or opinion pertinence.

Today the general theme is bailout confusion, so I thought I would share the links that relate to this.

In general, my home page today is rife with speculation about how the candidates may or may not vote. I am not assuming, in particular, that McCain will say yes to the bailout.

There is even speculation that both candidates will avoid the Senate vote --- which is now set for Wednesday.

At any rate, a survey of salient links:
