    You know, for the past couple of years or so, I have heard so many supposedly smart and connected people say, uh, “It’s almost impossible to recognize a bubble when you’re in it” when the subject of our last el-grande bubble of real estate comes up. You know, the housing bubble I recognized in maybe ’02, that 90% of others were ‘blindsided” by, including geniuses like Greenspan, Bernancke, 99% of the banks in the WORLD, rating agencies, investment houses, insurance companies, 75 % of the American public, and, of course, Fannie/Freddie, the black hole for the right side of my pay stub. But, for the past almost year, I’ve heard many smart and connected people tell me that the safety of bonds and bond funds are in a bubble. They were in a bubble last summer, and they are more than certain about that, it seems.
