Bringing Out The Dead

Daniel Gross on the battle over the stimulus.

Daniel Gross on the walking dead of Wall Street

Something that continually amazes me is the resistance to the stimulus package- as if we have any other options at this point. How someone can argue that we need to increase consumption to get the economy moving, and yet argue that employing people will not do this? Every argument I have seen against this stimulus seems breathtakingly self serving.

On tonight's installment of PBS' Make Me Laugh, a documentary about comedy, Chris Rock made an excellent point. Since ignorance is bliss, the opposite of ignorance-the knowledge and ability to understand and appreciate what's going on-everything that's happening-that's hell.

I know what he means.
