Links: 2010-02-12 – European recovery falters and mortgage problems

Folks, if I can get out of here [DC], I will.  I need the sun and that relaxation that only Mexico can provide.  So expect light posting next week.  Meanwhile, DC expects yet more snow on Monday (ha ha ha – Schadenfreude – ha ha!).

Have a great weekend.
