I thought this was a good Q&A about the various government bailouts. Note to Sen. Johnny Isakson: I think it's OK to call them that now.
I gotta tell you, though, saying that "Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke is arguably the world's leading expert on the Great Depression" doesn't fill me with the confidence it's probably intended to.
By the way, McClatchy, the company that owns The Macon Telegraph, announced plans yesterday to cut 10 percent of its work force. That's more than 1,100 jobs.
The Telegraph hasn't said how many jobs it will need to cut as part of those plans. Assuming we do lose some jobs, that will be the fourth or fifth round of layoffs here at the paper since I joined the staff 8 years ago. Maybe more. It's hard to keep count.
I'm headed to Arizona tomorrow for the weekend. Tune in Monday to find out if I still work here.
