The nation's elites, from politicians to leaders of business and
finance, have been caught playing fast and loose with the rules.
More serious than smoking in the gym and calling the English
teacher "Daddio," they've tarnished our national reputation, run up
our bills, robbed our savings, and stalled our economy. Now that
it's time to take them to task, they've all come down with Charlie
Brown Syndrome, crying, "why is everybody always picking on me!?"
While we contemplate how to punish these scoundrels for their
misdeeds, let's enjoy a little music, wait for our piece of the
stimulus package, and watch the chickens come home to roost.
