Stepping out of the trance

I heard some extraneous account of whalers trying to save a penguin from a hoard of orca whales today. They killed tons of whales to try and save one penguin, the water brimming crimson from the spilled orca blood. I'll take this as a poetic analogy to how Congress is trying to solve the economic crisis. It should just allow the practice of fractional-reserve banking to die gracefully, or at least to transmogrify into something more stable. I'll continue to be a stoic observer.
