You won’t hear any teabaggers quoting this op-ed from the most important man in American business, but it’s worth reading.

Well, Uncle Sam, you delivered. People will second-guess your specific decisions; you can always count on that. But just as there is a fog of war, there is a fog of panic — and, overall, your actions were remarkably effective….

…So, again, Uncle Sam, thanks to you and your aides. Often you are wasteful, and sometimes you are bullying. On occasion, you are downright maddening. But in this extraordinary emergency, you came through — and the world would look far different now if you had not.

Your grateful nephew,


Would have been nice if he wrote that before the lunatic fringe of Republicanism, which brought us this catastrophe, took over the US House of Representatives, the state of Ohio, and much else.  They will do with these arms of government what they always do – make matters worse, in complete ignorance of facts, living in a fantasy world of their own creation, at the expense of the rest of us.

But better late than never, Warren.
