Financial crisis brings ruling class to tears

Those who rule over us, all of whom have investments from which they have been doing very well thank you for some time, are now suddenly going around with long faces mumbling about “irresponsibility”, “reckless speculation”, “profit-at-any-cost mentality”, “crooked capitalism” and “greed”.
They appear to have thought they have all the natural processes of life so well tied up that there’s no longer any risk in plain old gambling.
