Nothing so far

Ever since Uncle Alan had his road to Damascus experience in a House committee room yesterday, Spot has been watching the websites of Shot in the Dark, SCSU Scholars, and the Minnesota Free Market Institute, looking for a reaction. As the title suggests, there is none as of mid-morning on Friday.

Spot assumes it will take a while for these Three Marketeers to process the event.

Think of Jesus Christ coming back and saying, "Aw, shucks, I was just an ordinary fella."

There are only a couple of possible responses to the news that Uncle Alan has admitted that unregulated capitalism has come a cropper.

First, and probably the smartest - and the least likely - is to fold up their tents and go (or stay) home.

Second, Greenspan can be denounced as a traitor and and counter-revolutionary who must be exiled to a re-education camp for as long as it takes for him to rediscover the light.

And lastly, and Spot believes this is what will actually happen, the Three Marketeers could take the "he was misquoted" line, and try to dissemble their way out it. This could provide hours of entertainment for Spot, and for you, boys and girls.

Let's wait and see what happens.
