Day 3: Stimulus

I think the auto industry bailout is, overall, a good thing, as long as it's accompanied by real change in the leadership and their greed and their short-sightedness and their mismanagement. I also think that the banking bailout has proved to be a giant fucking hairshirt of the worst kind; it was a stupid idea to use tax dollars to subsidize the spa retreats and annual bonuses of a bunch of assholes who send email to each other for a living and are paid more for running their companies into the ground than for making a profit.

No, I don't think the two are the same thing.
