Bernanke Day!

Today is the first-ever Federal Reserve policy press conference.  The front row will be packed with celebrities like Hampton Pearson, Alec Baldwin and Penelope Cruz.  Paparazzi will be swarming the grounds outside desperate for a glimpse of the proceedings inside.  Even Zero Hedge will be sending a reporter, you’ll know her by the black nail polish and bangs hanging over her eyes.
