It's too hot to handle so I gotta get up and go

It's a cruel ... cruel summer"

"The system failed."

"And why is that?", the Globe-Republican asks. Could it have anything to do with the laissez-faire policies espoused by your paper throughout the Bush years?

Whether it's peanuts or credit default swaps the market decided it's best to look the other way, ultimately putting us all at risk.
