So it is.
Perhaps later a hot bath and extended consideration of the joys of The Burrito?
You know, the Niebuhr bit.

After the past two days, a hot bath, mountains of bubbles, and a good long cry in the privacy of my Sal de Bain sound very good to this tech wench, SIE. I can't wait for the work day to be over.
The Unit has been getting home so late that I never drink anything during the week anymore. Even one drink just wipes us out the next day. Saturday can't come too soon.

I choose Goldman Sachs to go ALL THE WAY!
From information dated 14th February 2000:
Former US Secretary to the Treasury Robert Rubin was, and is, an executive of Goldman Sachs & Co. In joining the Clinton administration, Rubin was keeping a traditionally close relationship between Goldman Sachs and the US Government.
A former senior partner of Goldman Sachs, Sydney J. Weinberg - according to his obituary in The New York Times, - was the 'unofficial' adviser to five US Presidents, FDR, Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy and Johnson.
In July last year he (Rubin) stepped aside from the US Treasury Secretaryship, handing the reins to Lawrence Summers.

Now Henry Paulson.
That track's as a near dynasty!

I'm rootin' for The Queen of England over The U.S. Congress by 12 Points, in the Final Four.

My gut tells me it's going to be BofA (the bastards) vs. JPMC. I'm not putting my money on either of them as it is currently being invested in some seriously low stock at the moment...

Don't bet the ranch on any alumnus of Goldman Sachs saving the day.
The current CEO of the People's Democratic Republic of New Jersey is a GS grad and his proposed solution to NJ's budget crunch was to raffle off every revenue-producing asset the state owned -- for about 40% of each one's annual revenue-production...

Have I missed the point?
Wasn't betting on GS to "save the day" but to come out on top - the big winner, i.e smelling like a rose.

Nope. I was split-screening and lost the topic.
GS could still come out on top with a redolence more of refuse heap than rose garden, though...

how does your garden grow?...
