What am I, chopped liver?
According to Paul Krugman, I'll be getting a check for $300. A paltry amount, if the idea is to move a sluggish economy, but I'll be spending it, rather than hoarding it, so I'll be doing my part. Three guesses what I'll be spending it on.
And if the check arrives in June, that'll keep all the [four-footed] critters here well-fed and flea-free until about the end of December 2008. How very canny of them, our Congress, timing that little subsidy so that it lasts just long enough to make me feel all warm and fuzzy about them on Election Day, but no longer than that. Can't be wasting those tax dollars, y'know.
