Help me understand the current economy.

In light of yesterdays events with Lehman Brothers, Merril Lynch and AIG and all the hubbub with the the "Mac" banks, I'm pretty confused about the economy. I'd like to spend the day reading up to understand the entire situation, starting with the housing market leading up to Bear Stearns and culminating this weekend's events. Could someone please recommend some key articles that will help me wrap my brain around this entire situation?

My understanding of whats going on is very hazy at this point. I've got small pockets of understanding but really need a crash course on our current economy. I'd like sources that could walk me through the last year or so.
I don't need speculation on where we are going, just a sensible, even headed explanation of what happened. Multiple sources are appreciated.
