And it will be interesting to see what crawls out from under this one:

NEW YORK (Reuters) - New York state prosecutors have sent subpoenas to Wall Street firms seeking information related to the packaging and selling of debt tied to high-risk mortgages, the Wall Street Journal reported, citing people familiar with the matter. . . .

The probe appears to be examining the relationships between mortgage companies, third-party due-diligence firms, securities firms and credit-rating firms as they relate to the role securities firms played in the subprime mortgage crisis, the Journal said.
Well, well, well. I'm guessing there will be all kinds of interesting stuff on those potted plant reports. Somebody's aspidistra is going to be in a sling . . .
