Catherine: Well, you sent me the German constitutional court report today, and you know, I’m used to – it’s kind of pretty hard to applaud you, but that one really did get under your craw.
Franklin: Well you know, the thing about it is that’s not exactly what you’d call German precision. When it comes to this court to say there’s a high probability this (ECB bailout) is unconstitutional, is it their job to say whether it is or not, and not to give us odds like at some racetrack?
