With all of the downward swirling news (not unlike water in a toilet) about the US financial "precession" -- fading dollar, housing debacle, credit crunch, etc. -- it seem insane to me that the lunkheads in Washington are actually debating whether there should be strong regulations put on the industries of finance. Hmm. While we were out the baby got hold of the matches and set fire to the house. I wonder if we should call the fire department and hide the matches, or just let the house burn and show the baby how to work the lighter.
