A Torrid Tale of Love, Lies, and Collateralized Debt Obligations

Robin Kane might be winning the financial mixed-metaphor contest, but when it comes to tortured similes,

Ray Pasimio has the competition truly beat. Ladies and gentlemen, the worthy recipient of a Dishonorable Mention in the 2008 Bulwer-Lytton Fiction Contest:

Carey, unnerved by an affair that had suffered through weeks of volatility, walked unsteadily, her dress etching complex runes in the fine patina of dust along the antiquated floor, to a rose-scented box of love letters in a vain attempt to find solace, like a security fund struggling to find liquidity in the US sub-prime mortgage market.

Magnificent stuff. Between this and yesterday’s video from Equity Private, I think we have a whole new, um, asset class here.
