  1. I love how the title is not Government Bailout anymore…it’s “Troubled Asset Relief Program.” I understand completely that this is needed, but I am completely clueless about where this money is coming from. I hope it helps.

    My first thought when I saw that “Deep Throat” died was “so what.” I’m not saying that people shouldn’t care that he died, but I’m starting to wonder why every time I watch the news I hear about some older actress, historian, playwright, etc. who’s passed on.
