Lehman Brothers emerges from bankruptcy

Lehman Brothers said it will start paying back its creditors next month. Investors can begin buying shares.

This final note today. Sept. 15th, 2008 was three years, five months and 21 days ago.

It's a somewhat relevant date in the economy of our times. Lehman Brothers filed for bankruptcy that morning. Today, the company -- what's left of it, more like -- got out from under Chapter 11 and said it would start paying back its creditors next month.

You can, should you so choose, buy shares in Lehman Brothers Holdings, Inc.: two-and-a-half cents apiece.
