Sorry, Jon, I disagree. Timing is inportant in public opinion and right now, taxpayers and homeowners are too angry to support government action that appears to support the very organizations that caused their current woes. Granted, there are good guys and bad guys in this, as in any situation, but it takes months to sort out who did what -- if it's ever sorted out -- and we don't have months. Pull back a bit, think how public and media reactions work, and realize that any government-based support to business will have to be completely distinct, in both nature and timing, from current legislation aimed at AIG. Trust takes a long time to re-build. And it's up to business to re-build it.
