It's Time to Hear From Poets & Comics
About the Financial System Meltdown
Okay, we've heard enough from the politicians and pundits about the near-meltdown of the financial system. Now it's the poets and comedians turn to take a whack at it. My friend the poet Amy Sparks, she of the luminous smile and even more luminous pen, had this to say about it. Meanwhile, Fortune Magazine's resident wise guy Stanley Bing (actually a pen name for a guy who's a top PR person at CBS) weighed in with this, while Shaker Heights native Andy Borowitz had this to say. Not feeling like poetry or jokes are going to help? Then you might try this handy page on the Wall Street Journal's recently upgraded website, which provides links to their comprehensive coverage of the still-unfolding financial crisis.
