Brother, Can You Spare A Dime?

Lots of talk lately about what the hell this bailout will mean for Wall Street and for Main Street. (Tonight, SNL's Weekly Update added, "As always, Martin Luther King Blvd., you're on your own.")

Most believe that we're in for a long, hard road ahead. Sad and despaired visions of "Hooverville" from the Great Depression are brought to mind. I'm afraid of what lies ahead. I've got folks who depend on me and I haven't been bringing home much even when the economy has been good.

Let's hope it doesn't come to me asking, "Brother, can you spare a dime?"
