From my Sunday, October 5, 2008 blog entry at consciousmanager.blogspot.com:

To the tune of Ella Fitzgerald's "Someone to Watch Over Me":

There’s a bailout someone's longin’ to see
Citibank... sure wants to be
The one for Wa-cho-vi-a

I'm a little lamb who’s borrowed heavily
Prompt payer of bills, sure tried to be
Now Hank Paulson walks all over me

Although he may not be the man some
Would expect to pay the ransom
To my house he carries the key

Won’t you tell him please to put on some speed
Follow my lead, oh, how I need
Someone to watch over me-ee
and Wells Fargo, Wa-cho-vi-a.

... and thank you, John, for the poem. If the meltdown brings out the muse in us, well at least that's something positive.

Change is often painful but necessary. We can fear it or embrace it. I'm with you, we will soon see a new age. Just because "it ain't exactly clear" doesn't mean we run away from it. We can't anyway. Keep sending out the positive message, there are many who will listen.

Thanks, Fred.

here's the original song from the 1960s: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0g9PiEgYYUU&feature=PlayList&p=1A2E57316B1C6838&playnext=1&index=28

Steve, thanks and yes, welcoming in the new and allowing the outmoded to die without knowing exactly what the new ill look like does require faith and vision, not likely to be present if we are huddled together in fear.
