Cole Porter Stomp

November 29, 2011 - Harry Eagar
The Los Angeles Times quotes a lawyer as saying it probably isn't a violation to spray pepper at people shopping with you. We already learned that it's not merely legal but -- according to the numerous advocates of a police state -- a positive public benefit to pepper peaceful protesters.

Anything goes.

And everything went. RtO had harsh things to say about what Henry Paulson was doing in public when he was Secretary of the Treasury in 2008. According to Bloomberg News, RtO didn't have a clue about the much worse things he was doing with his wall Street cronies. But it's all good. No law or regulation or even any ethical norm was breached.

Oh, and we are expected to believe that these bankers didn't use the insider leaks to steal money.

Anything goes.

(Years ago, when I wrote headlines for a living, I used to fancy myself as a sly dog, getting layered allusions into a handful of words. I'm out of practice now, but I'm rather pleased with the hed on this post. Fans of Dixieland should get it. Fans of hiphop, if any should wander so far astray, won't. Their loss, I think.)
