A solution to the financial crisis
The only decent thing to do, I have decided, is to suspend my column until I can figure out a way to resolve this financial crisis. After much thought, I have a developed a solution that will help Main Street, stick it to Wall Street and provide 5 million new jobs to boot. So sit...
