Spread between Realized and Implied Volatility is Astronomical

The VIX ended up BIG today settling above 21%.  However I think the real story is not just how high VIX is, but how NOT high volatility has been.  The spread is through the roof and I am not sure the lat time I saw something like this.  It looks like the fiscal cliff at the end of 2013 on steroids
