    Woops, there go those goal posts again.

    I guess you don't understand what Krugman was getting at? He was arguing that the stimulus was too small. He was right.

    Watch your language.

    It isn't. Prof is like a cross between Chicken Little and Whack-A-Mole.

    Maybe, just maybe, GM will figure out to stop building monster cars. I'm very optimistic about these 2, the Spark and the Sonic.
