Today's must read:

After Lloyd Blankfein let slip that Goldman Sachs were performing "God's work", the revised Lord's Prayer has just been released:

Our chairman, who art at Goldman,
Blankfein be thy name.
The rally's
come.

God's work be done.
We have no fear of correction.
Give us this
day our daily gains,

and bankrupt our nearest competitors,
just as you
taught Lehman and Bear a lesson.

And bring us not under indictment,
for
thine is the Treasury,

the House and the Senate,
forever and ever,
Goldman.
