Alstry, this is right up your alley.  The "Daily Walk of Shame" column is about CalPERS.

When CalPers got suckered into the LandSource the time of the deal I blogged how someone got hosed....a year later, upper management was gone and LandSource was bankrupt.

Right now we are siphoning off our pension assets and investing in insolvent companies.....expect CalPers to be the first in a long line of pension issues over the next few weeks.

As the husband of a California state employee (your wife is a teacher, is she not?), I felt certain that you would be acutely aware of CalPERS and thought you might enjoy the column.

My best to your family.
