Nick Cave on why not to enter awards competitions:

MY RELATIONSHIP WITH MY MUSE IS A DELICATE ONE AT THE BEST OF TIMES AND I FEEL THAT IT IS MY DUTY TO PROTECT HER FROM INFLUENCES THAT MAY OFFEND HER FRAGILE NATURE. SHE COMES TO ME WITH THE GIFT AND IN RETURN I TREAT HER WITH THE RESPECT I FEEL SHE DESERVES - IN THIS CASE THIS MEANS NOT SUBJECTING HER TO THE INDIGNITIES OF JUDGEMENT AND COMPETITION. I AM IN COMPETITION WITH NO-ONE.

Via Bill Gates --- a very sober, rational presentation of what the USA financial situation looks like in terms that any business owner would appreciate. Watch the video and spread. An informed public needs to understand the basics.

Interesting. A bit heavy on the cost-cutting emphasis vs. revenue generating, a la mode.

But to carry the "like a business owner" analogy a step further, if I had been lending you money for forty years, and then I ran on hard times, I'd surely expect you to pay me back. And the interest that would have compounded over those forty years would have more than quadrupled the principle.

Which is what happened with the Social Security surplus the fund ran for forty plus years - the government spent the SS surplus instead of borrowing on the open market, as it should have. And now that SS needs the money it lent the government, the response is no, you have to cut your spending. That wouldn't be fair to a business owner, would it?

OK. Let's all make a commitment to vote out of office any congressman who votes for this bill. The bill supposedly still prohibits telemarketers from calling cellphones, but I doubt there's much in the way of teeth there.

As the article says "If that's the list of supporters, you can be pretty sure it sucks for you."

These are, after all, the same people that Danny Sullivan is reporting on in his post:

Great (frightening) piece on how Germany is the key to all of the EU's financial issues.
