Want to know why we are experiencing a financial meltdown? Government meddling in the marketplace! They created this mess, from the Fed, to the FNMA monopoly, to encouraging people to buy homes they couldn't afford. Now they are panicking and have to rescue a ton of companies that were forced to use these government institutions.
On a much smaller scale, Seattle is gearing up to ban pit bulls. You can count on it. There have been a couple of recent pit bull attacks, and now an editorial in the Seattle Times which opens the door to politicians to regulate or outright ban breeds (and letting them know the paper will not criticize them for doing so). This will fail, too.
