$700 Billion Bucks on the Field, Please

I don't know how many of you like to gamble, but the USO Girls can attest that I'm a big sucker for the stuff. Anyways, since the odds are stacked against you, people often revert to fanatical superstitions such as always tapping the dice before a roll, never throwing cash on the table mid-shoe or when the marker's down, and never saying out loud certain numbers which could cause your economic demise. The fact that Bush just announced we're going to throw out $700B to buy up a bunch of risky assets and his speech was 13 minutes long is simply terrifying.
