The Fury
Comes Later

Maureen Dowd’s New York Times column, “Sound, but No Fury,” on the September 26 debate at Oxford, Mississippi–

“Who would have dreamed that when socialism finally came to the U.S.A. it would be brought not by Bolsheviks in blue jeans but Wall Street bankers….?”

Perhaps Ernest Lehman, author of screenplays for “The Prize” and “From the Terrace.” (See recent Log24 entries.)

Paul Krugman’s column in today’s online Times, “Moment of Truth“–

“The consequences of Lehman’s fall were apparent within days, yet key policy players have largely wasted the past four weeks. Now they’ve reached a moment of truth: They’d better do something soon– in fact, they’d better announce a coordinated rescue plan this weekend– or the world economy may well experience its worst slump since the Great Depression.

Let’s talk about where we are right now.”

Song of Songs 8:8–
We have a little sister,
and she hath no breasts:
what shall we do for our sister
in the day when she shall
be spoken for?

Burt Lancaster in 'Sweet Smell of Success'

“In Lehman’s fall
We sinned all.”
