Erin Burnett

The above photo taken by me was, I just discovered, published on Wikipedia. The photo is of CNBC business correspondent Erin Burnett, who is seen in mid-discourse on Vanderbilt Avenue, midtown Manhattan, on St Patrick's Day, 2008, across the street from the HQ of Bear Stearns. That portentous day... Bear Stearns, a giant of investing and financial services, its shadow cast around the entire world, collapsed, bringing to the attention of the general public the first ominous clouds of this current financial crisis.
