Now that's more like it

I sometimes think the free-market fundamentalists must lack the courage of their convictions, what with the running for the heretical government bailout whenever the seas get rough. Everybody likes the laissez-faire when times are smooth; I want to see someone keeping a hand on the rudder while the ship's going down.

Luckily we have David Brooks; finally someone willing to fiddle while Babylon burns. Of course, Bobo's paradise isn't going to be ruffled one way or the other, why would you ask?
