Observations from the Cheap Seats

    I turned the radio louder and louder. It can’t be true — but it was. In a brilliant stroke of comedic relief, Senator Harry Reid and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced that the Big 3 might get their desired bail-out, but they would have to present their business plans in early December to Barney Frank and Chris Dodd for their respective committees to consider.
