It’s a busy busy day and while I wait for callbacks and speedread through a brand new Army stability-operations field manual I had a question for the internet. "Bailout." What’s the etymology of the word? Do we mean "bail" as in bailing out a flood or "bail" as in bailing someone out of jail? I suppose that ultimately both senses of the word lead back to the same place. But inquiring minds want to know.
