In today’s Wall Street Journal (p. A13) a real man-bites-dog story:
"France Credits Deregulation for Cushioning Its Economy"
The lede: "PARIS—France, long a champion of a heavy government hand in its economy, credits recent deregulation for its ability to grow in the third quarter while other economies shrank." Memo to Washington: Even the French get it, so shut up about "deregulation" being the cause of our current slump.
What next? Maybe the headline: "France Hails Jerry Lewis as Comic Genius."
Oh, wait. . .
