    This was an article from the St. Petersburg Times Newspaper on Sunday. The Business Section asked readers for ideas o n "How Would You Fix the Economy?" I thought this was the BEST idea....I think this guy nailed it!

    Dear Mr. President,

    Patriotic retirement:

    There are about 40 million people over 50 in the work force - Pay them $1 million apiece severance with the following stipulations:

    1. They retire immediately. Forty million job openings - Unemployment fixed.

    2. They buy NEW American cars. Forty million cars ordered - Auto Industry fixed.

    3. They either buy a house or pay off their mortgage - Housing Crisis fixed.

    It can't get any easier than that!

    P.S. If more money is needed, have all members in Congress and their constituents pay their taxes
