Good morning. A few items to get the day started:

Yes, you have a disease. Not swine-flu pandemic, but even more toxic — to your financial health. Your brain’s infected with the 800-year-old “this time is different syndrome.” But unlike the swine flu, there’s no cure, no shot to protect you from a pandemic. You’re exposed.
