It’s a more product specific support than I usually do but with 20 years of picking up new systems it shouldn’t be that much of a problem.

If you have a spare prayer, I’ll certainly take it and if possible throw one toward my nephew too, he is off to Minnesota for an interview this week and his situation is rougher than mine.

Comes in two parts. Part one is the reporting on Cash for Clunkers. Lets look at Google News:

cash clunkers google

Google search 1 p.m. EST 10/29/09

You have 1,400 articles vs 23 on the effectiveness of Cash for clunkers.

Part two comes from one of those few articles that report on it. It isn’t in the meat of the article it is in the request at the bottom after the story:

Do you have a job because of the $787 billion stimulus package? We want to hear from people whose jobs have been created or saved by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Please e-mail your stories to and you could be part of an upcoming article. For the Comment Policy, click here. To top of page

In other words Please please PLEASE there must be someone we can paint as the poster child for the 787 billion that Congress and the president spent.

Lets cut to the chase, if they could point to the success of the stimulus package, they wouldn’t be trolling for people who benefited from it.

Update: Legal Insurrection explains why this is necessary.
