It's not a dig and I'm not trying to incite anything. It's just what's happening.

Sorry - nicolem! Actually all we need to do to prevent an economic meltdown is have every man, woman, and child in the US send in $33,000 to the IRS. The national debt would be paid off and we could get back to "normal". See? Wasn't that simple?

I'm still curious to know how NJ will weather this meltdown. Lots of commuters are tied to these firms, and I bet a lot of them will have to move away to find work.

I would say deep painful correction. We Americans need to give up part of the wealth we gathered in last 7/8 yrs.
