I think that the reason our legislators are struggling with what to do is because they don't know what they are dealing with. Is this a hic-up, a cold, a flu, guillian barre (paralysis of the whole body, in this case I mean financial system), a cancer? I have yet to hear any financial experts call this a recession, a depression, an acute crisis (like the S&L crisis). I think we need to name it, then we can fight it. But clearly my focus is not economics. What do I know.
In my little world we are celebrating dh's graduation today! Off to go get dressed up for the occasion, a rare event for a SAHM.
