Ukraine Goes Tracy Jordan

YahooNews: On Saturday, on Artema Street, in front of one of the city's beleaguered banks, 70 protesters gathered this week to vent their anger. Most have been told they can't touch their money for six months. Similar protests are often seen in the city.

The people on Artema don't trust banks, bank regulators, the economy, the currency, the government or politicians. President Viktor Yushchenko -- the man whose orange banner led the revolution -- has an approval rating below 3 percent.

I guess the lesson is, if you're a theif in Ukraine, you'd probably have better luck flipping people's matresses than robbing banks these days.
