Too Giamatti to Fail

Too Big to Fail was on TV last night, and it brought this to mind:

A long while back, the wife and I went to see The Negotiator in the theater. Good movie, with Samuel L. Jackson and Kevin Spacey. It was the first time I saw Paul Giamatti in anything.

There was one big family in the theater that must have been Giamatti's relatives. Every time he was on screen, they were all hootin and hollerin, laughing and celebrating... They had to be relatives.

Anyway, since then I could always identify Paul Giamatti.

About Too Big to Fail:

Just remember, everything they're talking about in the movie has to do with the crisis stage, which came some 40 years after our economy started failing. It's not like they stepped up and took the bull by the horns or anything.

They still think of those 40 years as pretty good times.

Put finance people in charge of policy, and they cannot see debt as a problem.
