Some of you who know me well know that there is one small segment of Church history that is truly embarrassing for me. It is... the Smoot-Hawley tariff. Yup. One of the worst bills to ever be passed by the United States government has the honor of starting with the name of a Mormon apostle. Oh well. Maybe that was God's way of chastising us. :) At least we'll never make that mistake again. ... Oh wait. We are. At least this time it's name is some mumbo jumbo recovery act and we're not responsible for it.
Mark Steyn has a rather humorous article that explains the stimulus. Well worth reading, even if it's only for the entertainment value.
I haven't seen a funny new youtube video in awhile. Dave Tufte posted a great one on his blog. Here it is for you to enjoy.
