With Congress still debating the $700-billion Wall Street bailout, our editorial cartoonist Cristian Fleming did some extra work this week and crafted this bit of political opinion-making.

“I’m so sick of the idea of this bailout,” he said, explaining the rare extra cartoon this week. “The whole thing stinks.”

Reasonable discourse

Lumi from Park Slope says:
Plus, the IRS is debating whether or not to allow tax-exempt bond-financing for Bruce Ratner's stadium, which, by some accounts, will put $165 million in the developer's pocket.

Imagine that behind Paulson and "Wall St.," Bruce Ratner and George Steinbrenner are standing in the shadows with their hands outstretched.

"Gulp" indeed.
