National Geographic films PR Stunt for NY Fed's Gold Vault

Just like the Bank of England did with its gold vault a few weeks ago, when they had a little old lady stand in front of some bars and nod sagely, and then a mad professor fondle other bars. Now we have the NY Fed, the other large central bank depository, using the good name of one of the world's most respected documentary film makers to give them a plating of confidence.

Methinks there is something rotten in the state of New York.

The Merchant of Venice:
O hell! what have we here?
A carrion Death, within whose empty eye
There is a written scroll! I’ll read the writing.
All that glitters is not gold;
Often have you heard that told:
Many a man his life hath sold
But my outside to behold:
Gilded tombs do worms enfold.
Had you been as wise as bold,
Young in limbs, in judgment old,
Your answer had not been inscroll’d:
Fare you well; your suit is cold.
