The funny thing about the economic meltdown

The current economic meltdown takes long weekends off. All through Friday, stock exchanges were rollercoasting (you know, roller coasters do have a tendency to start at the top and end up at rock bottom), but right now all those stock gamblers are at home strangling their tear-sodden pillows, waiting for Monday's ride - or Tuesday's, if they are American. Until then, the meltdown is on hold and the wise and fearless leaders of the Great Seven have until then to draft a message that will soothe the stock markets' little lemming minds and stop their little, abyss-bound lemming legs.

My suggestion: "Bankers of the world, live a little! Spare a penny for your fellows!"
