To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    I'm torn. I philosophically agree, but my pocketbook disagrees.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    I think that's probably how most reasonable people feel. There are a zillion reasons to object to the bail out (each appealing to a different group), but now what?

    I get that. Being that I'm more philosophically than reality minded, I think it's better overall. Just desserts.

    That's okay. The world as I knew it wasn't all that great anyhow.

    Now everyone gets to eat the sandwiches they made for themselves--in their new tiny apartments.
