Portents of the apocalypse

No, not a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars. Even Victoria Beckham wouldn't wear that, even if she does occasionally forget to put on a shirt with her tie. Rather, according to the FT:
The US government may have to nationalise some banks on a temporary basis to fix the financial system and restore the flow of credit, Alan Greenspan, the former Federal Reserve chairman has told the Financial Times.
Scarcely before the rain of blood starts, we also find:
“We should be focusing on what works,” Lindsey Graham, a Republican senator from South Carolina, told the FT. “We cannot keep pouring good money after bad.” He added, “If nationalisation is what works, then we should do it.”
I advise taking wellington boots to work for the next few days: a plague of frogs could really mess up your brogues (or Louboutins, depending).
