AIG in BIG trouble

May follow Lehman and Merrill into the dustbin of history before too much longer. Shares down 50% to $6 a piece. AIG needs to borrow $40B (their losses over the last three quarters) from the Fed window just to survive. I would be very concerned if the Fed opened their window to an insurer; that's unprecedented.
