Big Snow: weather menace or 'stimulus' opportunity?
There's a third possibility, Jerome! Have you checked with Paul Krugman to see if he's celebrating the snowstorm as a wonderful opportunity for government stimulus spending? Just look how much pork they were able to stuff into the Hurricane Sandy relief bill. Frozen pork tastes as good as tropical storm pork, although it lacks those delightful Caribbean spices.
It seems like only yesterday that the frozen survivors of Obama's Katrina were being lectured about how the storm proved that "only Big Government can solve big problems." I'm sure Uncle Sam is ready to bust out his super-sized snow shovel, too.
