If we're gonna talk to actors about Wall Street, why not raise the dead and ask them about medical care?

I admit that there are a lot of things that make me twitchy these days.  Growth hormones in milk.  Carcinogens, pesticides and antibiotics in our drinking water.  Even Wall Street melting down like a Popsicle in a July heat wave. But the latest bit of media lunacy and weapons of mass distraction just take the cake.  Interviewing an ACTOR about an economic catastrophe.

Yes, Michael Douglas starred in a movie back in the -80s about Wall Street.  Yes, the movie was very intense. But, Brother Douglas ain't no economist or expert in brokerage houses, stock trades, investment fraud or economics.

You know the news media is really dredging the bottom of the barrel when they go after actors to explain reality in terms of the roles they played.  What next?

Are we going to raise Robert Young (Dr. Welby, MD) from the dead and ask him to testify before Congress on the healthcare crisis.  Or, how about sending someone to raise the dead and get President Herbert Hoover's take on the situation?

We have experts, counter-experts, wanna be mavens, morons, magicians, con artists and other critters ready to make more zillions off of the tax payer in the wake of this crap, and here the media goes after actors for information about the latest economic meltdown.

I'll be, that somewhere out there, a right wing lab is busy trying to force grown Reagan clones to save the day,

I was gonna make this an article, but the idea is just too depressing, so, luckily for you, you can read this in a few minutes, then head off to the fridge or elsewhere for your mind-altering substance of choice.
