Dear readers, you all sent me the money needed to take the train to Washington, DC. There, I not only got great photos and met lots of people some of whom knew me in NYC as 'the Housewife From Hell' as the Daily News dubbed me long, long ago. I got very lucky and got to sit within arm's reach of Bernanke and Paulson. I used this occasion to 'touch' them both in the singular way I operate. A sign that this succeeded was the fact that a sudden, rather violent storm came roaring ashore and not only hit DC, but followed me home like a dog. So today, I am very happy to learn that Bernanke's sleep has been as disturbed as Paulson's sleep. Now, he is LEAVING THE FRAY and going into hiding! HAHAHA.
