WBJ puts a local spin on potential results of a bailout...

"While the government’s planned takeover of $700 billion of bad mortgages will continue to chill most of the region’s commercial real estate activity for the next year or two, the bailout likely will also mean more jobs and increased economic activity for the Washington region."

Entire story here...

Bad form for the Washington Business Journal to be reporting on the potential benefits to the DC region before a deal's even done??

Silver lining or more lipstick on a pig???

And although I've purposely tried to avoid this $700 billion topic to focus on more earth-shattering news like Dancing with the Stars and Gayken finally walking through that closet door, Mr Q finds it somewhat unsettling that he and uber-conservative George Will are in agreement on something!!

"Under the pressure of the financial crisis, one presidential candidate is behaving like a flustered rookie playing in a league too high. It is not Barack Obama."
From today's Post...

The world has gone completely wacky!!
