    As an addendum to my post last week, kudos to SA author Craig Pirrong for his note (in brackets) on this quote from the Financial Times, no less:

    Warner also said that the prospective Senate version of the Kanjorski amendment passed by the House also includes using capital adequacy standards to reign in excessive risk taking by financial institutions and that such an approach gives regulators greater flexibility. [Pet peeve alert: it's rein in dammit, not "reign in." It's pretty bad when the editors of one of the world's largest newspapers, and a British one no less, doesn't know the difference.]

    As a British editor, what can I say?  Thankfully we're not all like that.

    LOL. It could have been worse, I guess. They could have written "rain in."

     

    Thanks for reading so carefully :)
