If at First Inflation Fails, Try, Try Again.
The Reuters headline says it all: U.S. hiring scene pointing to economy in need of Fed’s help. I can almost hear the Beach Boys’ Al Jardine: “Help me, Benny!

Leno Needles the IRS. Audience Applauds.
Now that he is leaving the Tonight Show, Jay Leno is showing his colors. This was choice. President Obama says he’s renewing his efforts to close Guantanamo Bay. Guantanamo Bay?
