@AlexB; there is no such thing as bankruptcy in terms of a sovereign state. Your definition applies to a private entity or some other governmental entities. The word you are looking for is default. And we were very close to default of some kind -- one that would likely prioritize bond holders over other entities.

@DavidC; exactly. Just like in Europe. Wait a second...
