Financial regulations are long overdue
Play by play
I think it's safe to say that there is some significant anti-Washington sentiment out there in the land -- and even some right here inside the beltway typing this blog post! We all agree that something needs to change, but we seem to want it to change in opposite directions. Politics in the United States since Reagan or Carter or Nixon or somebody has come to resemble the Gossage-Varbedian Papers, a Woody Allen short story about a chess game by mail that goes awry, resulting in ever more diverging views of the state of play. Things have come to the point where a sizable number of Americans seem to believe that President Obama is somehow not legitimately president.
And speaking of the state of play, one last thought on this week's never-to-be-repeated exercise of me writing about sports. It has always struck me as odd the way people, and I mean practically ALL people -- besides me, that is -- regard the final score of a game to have "proven" something or other. I think the score reflects who was ahead when the game ended. There are so many variables that, while better performance is a big advantage, sometimes it wins and other times it doesn't. But that's just me. Americans, young and old, left and right, thin and stout, agree that the contest is run, the result proves who deserved to win, and that's that. Except when it's Obama. --Tom Toles
