All this talk of sending more billions to the auto companies makes me sit up and say STOP!

Good point, good post, RV. (Never were much of a word-mincer, were you?!)

Sometimes I wonder about the evolving meaning of "free enterprise." As I think about the events of the last several months--and now with a GM debacle at hand--it seems as if the phrase now means "Free Not To Succeed." Unc will be there. He forgives bad decisions, greed, and failure to survey competitive landscapes, etc.

We small biz owners fume like heck at some of these goings-on. I was "free" to order orange sherbet for my store last summer. It didn't sell. "Hey, come get this stuff. Bring a refund for $20.50 for the 3-gallon tub, will you? I can't promise this is the last bad decision I'll make, either. I know you understand."


I want to know that executives are, perhaps, limited to no more than the President of the United States earns.

I'd favor limiting it to what GWB was actually worth.
