Josh Billings summed it all up a long time ago. Debt, he said, "is a trap which a man sets and baits himself, and then deliberately gets into." If Billings is right -- and of course he is -- then our elected officials aren't much smarter than mice. The only difference is that someone else has to bait the trap for mice; our government has baited the trap for itself. Frankly, I wouldn't care all that much if our elected reps were the only people in the trap. Unhappily, I'm in there with them -- and so, remarkably, are all of our fellow Americans and millions of Americans yet unborn. If this is the result of the evolution from mouse to man, it doesn't say much for evolution.
