A short while ago our reporter’s lead piece on the stimulus debate went something like this: "The economy is in crisis, and so is the economic recovery plan…"

And for now that bulletin from George is looking exactly right.
Nothing like a Friday night when the lead story turns upside down at 5:30, and a fresh story (the FDA says that peanut company knowingly shipped salmonella-contaminated products) knocks out another (the Michael Phelps brouhaha).
