"A panel of top business leaders testified before Congress about the
worsening recession Monday, demanding the government provide Americans
with a new irresponsible and largely illusory economic bubble in which
to invest. 'What America needs right now is not more talk and long-term
strategy, but a concrete way to create more imaginary wealth in the very
immediate future,' said Thomas Jenkins, CFO of the Boston-area Jenkins
Financial Group, a bubble-based investment firm." [satire] (07/14/08)
