Oh, whither it should come to pass....

Meltdown Manhunt
"In an interview with CNBC, Representative Barney Frank says he wants to push for prosecution of the people who caused the country's financial meltdown," the financial network reports:

The Massachusetts Democrat says he has no specific targets in mind, but says the most significant thing lawmakers can do is make past bad practices illegal.
A September report from the Business & Media Institute suggests one possible target for investigation: a senior member of the House Banking Committee. This congressman is "a recipient of more than $40,000 in campaign donations from Fannie since 1989" and "was once romantically involved with a Fannie Mae executive." The same congressman "was and remains a stalwart defender of Fannie Mae." We won't mention his name--oh wait, come to think of it, we already did.

In other news, O.J. Simpson has gone undercover in a Nevada prison in search of the real killer.
