Just curious how you do your searches, are you just searching bloomberg or is it there site that comes up most with your key search words. I just see the trend and wonder why most of the links are from Bloomberg.

I guess what i am asking what do you know about bloomberg aside from the obviouse and why do you think that they are relaying current financial events so thoroughly. Do they have an agenda?

May be a strange question. Thanks for your work . Been following this crises for a long time now and i think i need to take a step back.

Its like watching the biggest passenger train wreck ever in slow motion. I cant take my eyes off it.....yet i have time to run a few errands.

I no longer believe Hx is human. Just a webbot that got rootkitted to fix it to Bloomberg. Once the programmers have run a decent anti-virus the feeds will doubtless revert to multi-sourcing.
