Obama ASAP Please !

The economy is in a pathetic shape crying for help. I see it everywhere around. Job market is scary. The shops / malls are not crowded at all !! Bad news everywhere.

Fairfield has lost quite a few businesses: Linens and things, Mervyn's, Circuit City to name a few. I hope it doesn't become a ghost town.

That said, I found this wonderful piece by my favorite Tom Friedman in NY Times today. Reflects exactly my thoughts !! Here is an excerpt:

Now you know why I don’t get invited out for dinner much these days. If I had my druthers right now we would convene a special session of Congress, amend the Constitution and move up the inauguration from Jan. 20 to Thanksgiving Day. Forget the inaugural balls; we can’t afford them. Forget the grandstands; we don’t need them. Just get me a Supreme Court justice and a Bible, and let’s swear in Barack Obama right now — by choice — with the same haste we did — by necessity — with L.B.J. in the back of Air Force One.

Great blog! Did you hear the good news??? New government grants and relief for lower and middle class, initiated by the Obama administration prior to inauguration.
