A note from reader MR:
I firmly believe the bailout plan failed because so many of your readers (such as myself) called Nancy Pelosi and demanded that it be limited to one million dollars. I actually said “I demand” at least six times during my recorded message to her. . . . Clearly, this is a huge triumph for your new blog that is already the most powerful blog in the interweb. KUDOS.
(My emphasis.) With great power comes great responsibility. Let us all pray I use it well.
