A Modest Proposal

To (only slightly) paraphrase the theologian Stanley Hauerwas, "I'm for the death penalty. I think they should build a guillotine on Wall Street and execute people for mortgage fraud!" At least, as a negotiating strategy, it's worth exploring--haul a load of lumber into the financial district, start pounding a few boards together, hum La Marseillaise, and see if we can't get better terms on, you know, the bailout thing.

Hee Hee Hee. I'm for it.

Or how about fraudulent government? Can we build a gibbet on the south lawn?

As a "thank you" gift, each contributing tax payer should at least get a tote bag.

Or two coffee mugs.

Or a set of four cocktail glasses, inscribed with the family crest of one of the "Masters of the Universe."
