A Thought for New Jersey
The financial world has been at sixes and sevens for months over the economic woes and imminent bankruptcy of Greece, Spain, Ireland, Portugal and Italy. Now, we're told, the European Union and the World Bank have come up with a plan to ride to the rescue with a bailout. Hmmmm. Maybe New Jersey, with dire economic woes of its own, should consider seceding from the Union and joining the European Union while they're in the bailout mood. Couldn't hurt to try.
