mass banks in trouble

The boys at went through an enormous amount of work to put together a list which shows the status of banks across the nation. And i quote their formula for determining danger:

"Developed by Gerard Cassidy, the Texas ratio is a measure of a bank's credit troubles. Basically, the higher the ratio, the worse the situation is for that particular bank. Banks with a ratio of 100 and higher are in very serious danger of collapse, and banks with a ratio of 50 or higher are vulnerable. This is the formula I used:100 * ((Non-performing Assets - U.S guaranteed loans) + Other REO) / (Equity + Loss Reserves)
All of this information is available on the FDIC website, but it's extremely difficult to gather in a meaningful way. In fact, I don't think you'll find a list like this anywhere else on the internet."

You will find some local banks here which few appear to be in trouble.

the evil at home

Barry the closet ......
lives on marsh
by the sea
drives to fall river,
spreads tyranny

barry the closet ...........
incites to call others down
spends hours of three
imagining some sort of powerful seat

dribbling right wing talking points
heaving and hoooing fantasies
ignoring facts like they were on crack

Barry the Closet .......
nothing knowing about the riv,
ask him directions to anywhere,
but despite three years he cant get you there.

Barry the closet....
makes fun of the fall river folk,
never done a thing for charity
yet thinks he knows our ropes

barry the closet .......
spent election day touting his boy
then when he lost
the next day
full of historic joy

oh barry the closet.....
what will he say today,
perhaps another factition
or a intellectually challenged foray

oh barry the closet
go bomb another country today
face the gaydar
and let that hate,
blow away!!!

deep river

there once was a city named deep river
named by a bishop dealing with diddlers
sits along seven hills
littered empty mills
blogs are pages of hate
streets narrow one ways
run by soprano light
paper: her old news
radio like flying shoes
here the poets will play
writing diddies of escapades
radiofree is me?
relieved of pomposity
oh if only it could be
understand my meninos
the spindle's web is a dynasty.
