Not sure whether to scream in frustration, vomit, or get drunk when you read the following kind of news? Now you know what Jesus, Gandhi and MLK all became aware of in their final days. The colossal extent of imbecility masquerading as Innocent Fraud is now fully exposed, and it's decision time. Do you want to "be" personally successful, or "do" something to save your nation? Today, the threat is not from Rome or Britain, but from the monolitihic rentiers who own Orthodox Economics and, by default, our country. If you want to hedge your bets while being a martyr, maybe buy stock in antiemetic producers.

Maya MacGuineas’s CEO-powered crusade against the deficit
As a citizen, I felt soiled after reading the Maya MacGuineas article. As a point of principle I'd canceled my WashPost subscription years ago, but my wife recently insisted upon starting it up again just to read the comics & do the crossword puzzles when her mom visits.
The shame. Surely the only way to go from here is up? Is that the only strand of optimism we can cling to? It really is decision time.
