Great and scary article on Rhode Island. Is it time to say that Meridith Whitney was right, but just early?

I bought 1000 shares of Netflix at $300 because I thought it would continue to rise forever. Now I’m underwater. Can I have a taxpayer-funded bailout, please? If I don’t get one soon, I’ll be in serious financial trouble. You wouldn’t want me to have to declare bankruptcy over a minor error of timing, would you? That wouldn’t be fair!
