I subscribe to Overstock's newsletter and there was a link to this article in it today. I'm horrified that something like this could happen and probably will happen again if restraints aren't enacted to prevent it.

What caused the failure of BS & LB was they had to sell stock at anyprice to meet their margin calls since they could not get anymore money. As a result, millions of shares hit the market 'at the market' and no one wanted to buy because they did not know how many shares were coming.
It was a domino event of mythic proportions caused by Paulsen & Bernacke being insanely stupid.
