Something you already knew

This week's no shit Sherlock award goes to... Treasury Overpaid For TARP Investments. What is more interesting, though, is utterly spurious precision being treated as fact. Yes, I am sure Treasury overpaid, but saying things like Treasury paid $254 billion for assets worth approximately $176 billion implies that with a bit of due diligence, we could find the 'right' value. And we really can't.
