Believe. Believe in the Easter Bunny, the tooth fairy, the Supreme Court…

The title is just a bit of cheap irony.  As we say occasionally, the cynicism on this site is so cheap that minimum wage workers can afford it.  But not as cheap still as the cynicism of the AMR exec who wants $20M as a going away present.  (You could throw up over CEO compensation, and especially AMR compensation.  But that might damage your keyboard, so go do it in the sink.)

Why no crash is imminent …
