Thank you for this clear, comprehensible article. It improved my understanding of the Lehman situation a great deal. It worries me that you almost gave up on writing this. Please do not be discouraged -- instead, write many more! We laypeople wish to understand the financial implosion, but to do so we need intelligent, dedicated people like you. Please thank your father for making your studies -- and therefore this article -- possible.
