Peter Drier at TPM Cafe has a neat post defining the difference between Obama's views of the economy and the Bush/Republican view. It isn't the difference between socialism and capitalism but between responsible capitalism and crony capitalism. I think he makes a very good case.

Well, it is a foggy morning and we may get rain. However, no temps below 30 for the next week--knock on wood. It has already been an out of kilter day. Our internet service was out until just after 8:30 buy which time I should have been completely through my e-mail and the blogs I usually follow. As it is I did manage a couple of other things. Some time ago I made an attempt to make my own vest pattern. After a couple of not so successful attempts, I, finally, managed to make a good paper pattern. This morning I cut out a fabric pattern from an old sheet so I can lay out the elements once I get them stitched. I also did some photoshop type of manipulation of one of the motifs. It still needs a good bit of work. I also pulled out one of the few remaining painted needlepoint canvases, got it on one of my q-snap frames, and started selecting the yarn/thread. Now I have two new Works in Progress (WIPs). So much for trying to complete a project before beginning a new one. I might get some pictures sometime soon.
