there was an article in the weekend edition of FT (out yesterday 03/26) that states that it's believed bernie has lost his ongoing legal battle with the banks. it remains to be seen if it's true, and it remains to be seen what the repurcussions will be if it is true. regardless, it should be entertaining! http://news.ft.com/cms/s/707f85e2-9d9d-11d9-a227-00000e2511c8.html you can't read the whole thing unless you're an online subscriber. i only have it on paper, so it's not convenient to post here - perhaps someone else could? doody.
