@1 ... um, Fnarf, I think he might be younger than you.

It's about time we got someone working on Treasury who wasn't a Looter or a Freebooter.

Toupee aside, though... He's kind of a hottie.

Gordon Brown of the UK shows all of us we should buy shares in banks get the ownership control and upside not just buy their bad paper.

He's very grumpy. Met him last time he was in Seattle. I know publicity tours suck, but most people can pull it together enough to be civil. He's not winning any nobels for miss congeniality, that's for sure.

@3, he's not, and age doesn't have anything to do with bad toupees. I have all of my hair, though I do make an effort to style it to LOOK like a bad toupee.

@7 Stop making me envision you as Tucker Carlson.

That's a low blow, BA. If I had to make the comparison, I'd say I'd look like Tucker if I sat in the digestive system of an angry hippopotamus for a week. And wore a bow tie, which I am not allowed to do.

I'd totally go straight for him.
