Back from vacation

By Reuters Staff

Hello again all. I’m back after 3 weeks in South America on the Amazon River and sailing the Galapagos Islands. The Amazon was fantastic, though the wildlife in Galapagos made for better photographic opportunities:

GIANT TORTOISES

BLUE-FOOTED BOOBIES


MARINE IGUANAS

AND LOTS OF BABY SEA LIONS

Along the way, we stumbled upon a sea lion in labor. We watched her give birth.  Amazing but poignant: the baby was still-born.

And, shortly, an update on the situation at the Mortgage Bankers Association, where the CEO resigned, a few days after OptionARMageddon exposed his poor performance.
