Iceland's reaction to banks' meltdown.

   Iceland is an interesting place. I never have been there, but have read about it. It is a volcanic island in the North Atlantic. Vikings often sought refuge there with women they had kidnaped during raids. The women tended to be attractive. Bobby Fisher played Boris Spassky for the world chess championship in Iceland's capitol.

   Also, Iceland had a banking crisis similar to our own. Iceland's people chose a different course of action than we did. Instead of rewarding, with bailouts that became bonuses, the individuals responsible for the crisis, the people of Iceland sued and prosecuted the bastards. We have a court system in this country. Usually it functions pretty well. The people at Lehman Brothers, Goldman-Saks, Citibank, Bank of America, JPMorgan Chase---they should be investigated (quickly, because the information is there and not much digging is necessary) and charges should be filed. Let those who committed the crimes stand trial. If found guilty, they should be imprisoned. People should sue to recoup the monies they have lost.
