  1. I d much rather see the former officers stripped of their ill gotten gains. Present boss is from Puget Sound and a real winner.

  2. If GSEs are restructured and a new entity was created, would it have any effect or over ride the new idiotic appraiasal rules in place?

  3. CR reports that Fannie lost 14.8b in Q2 and is requesting almost 10.7b from Treasury. Currently 171b in loans guaranteed by FNM are non-performing.
