Our Favorite Headline & Subhead of the Week

It's also one of the more satisfying developments we've read about, this moaning from Wall Street. While you're at it, perhaps you're also in the mood to read about the privations of an anonymous spouse of a banker who feels he must get out of the crosshairs of public attention as a result of accepting the federal TARP bailout funds. Please, do include all these poor folks in your prayers, will you? But if all that focus on bad economic news leaves you in need of some comic relief, I recommend this video clip posted not long ago by my friend Erin O'Brien, wielder of a uniquely wicked pen. I watched it four times, and laughed each time.

Having an organization behind them (i.e., a union) was probably the last thing on their minds when times were good, but I'll bet the Wall Street crowd wouldn't mind having someone stand up for them now ... not that that is any guarantee, as Guild members know only too well.

Nope, no guarantees for anyone in this brutal, Darwinian downturn.

Hi John. Thanks for the shout, although I should really be thanking Miss South Carolina.

God, I just watched that again and it IS funny.

She sure makes you pause and wonder about the state of education in America. With the rise of the idiot culture, is that kind of incoherence and extreme lack of articulation becoming the norm? I sure hope not.
