"Save Fritz Henderson!"

Well, perhaps not literally. An alternate title could be "Save GM from Itself." But General Motors itself is not news, of course, and that title would miss the lovely phrase "Fritz Henderson." The guy may be out of a job now, but he can almost certainly find employment if there is ever an opening for a big-band front man. I'm thinking "Fritz Henderson and the Car-Burators" would be cute.

Our Economy is Exiting the Shaded Area — Are You? | submitted by Walter Simson

A neat tool is available on the Web site of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis that allows you to track your own recession data. I looked at bank loans to businesses, which continue to decline. The Fed chart shows that the economy has exited the shaded area — shaded, as in "period of recession indicated by shaded area." Sure enough, there is a little band of white in the chart.
