Looks like the Fed is trying to put one more finger in the dike, and they don't have too many left. Another sign of the times...can't say I totally understand this, but whatever I find I'll tell you. And please, if you find something out, tell me:
From the following Federal Reserve Board (FRB) Press Release dated 30 July 2008:
