Opinion

This week

At times like these, a good maxim to keep in mind — not perfect, but pretty good — is that people who know typically don’t talk, and people who talk generally don’t know.

Come to find out later that correspondent Rick Santelli's rant against the Obama Administration's mortgage relief plan was an instant media sensation, drawing only slightly less page views on the Internet than the Bible has received throughout recorded history. Jeremiah had nothing on this Santelli guy. Reap the whirlwind and all that booyah!
