AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
So what is this knife doing there? There is no blood on it.

Al-Reuters: Sorry! We always crop our photos at the edges. | Washington Examiner
Translation: "We got caught red-handed supporting terrorists and trying to slime Israel."Little Green Footballs compared the Reuters photos to the original images published on the IHH website (IHH is the Hamas-linked charity group which organized the flotilla).
Reuters cropped the photos to remove images of “peace” activists holding knives and standing over bleeding Israeli troops.
Ed Barnes at Fox News has Reuters’ statement on the first photo:
“The images in question were made available in Istanbul, and following normal editorial practice were prepared for dissemination which included cropping at the edges,” the news agency said in a statement. “When we realized that a dagger was inadvertently cropped from the images, Reuters immediately moved the original set as well.”
Reuters has not responded to criticism over a second photo, from which they cropped a bleeding Israeli soldier, a knife, and a pool of blood on the ship’s rail.
Or perhaps there's an obvious financial motive in pouring oil on the Arab/Israeli conflict. After all, Reuters sells newspapers, and a billion Muslims buy newspapers. Six million Jews, not so many.
