Listener Vijay Ravindran sends this photo of a Monopoly board he and his wife Vibha adapted for game night this weekend. The couple overlaid new property names and created new Chance and Community Chest text -- "You made money off an unexpected CDS, collect $100" -- and called it Bailout Monopoly. Vijay writes:

I created sub-groupings of Bailout related topics for each property set, and also ranked them from worst (AIG and Bear Sterns for Baltic and Mediterranean) to best (B of A and JP Morgan Chase for Boardwalk and Park Place).
