A highlight of last week was my Jor-El like forebodings regarding Planet Krypton -- I mean on

private equity

.

That evening, I

discussed

why private equity was doomed on

CNBC's

"Fast Money" with Dylan Ratigan.

Yesterday, both the

New York Post

and

The New York Times

followed up with similar concerns.

Today,

The Wall Street Journal's

"

Private Equity Draws the Cold Shoulder

" embraces the notion that there is deep trouble in the private equity community.

I'll continue to try to stay ahead of that crowd!
