Jay Leno tries to defend the free market by banning it.
Would you trust a government that intervened in contracts: like, say, Sir Fred's pension or the AIG bonuses. And don't you think that losing that trust in the government's being constrained by law and contract poses a greater problem than the pension or the bonuses?

There really are times when doing nothing is the best idea.
And finally, blaming the teachers.
