Your point about the veneration of business is excellent. The functions of government and business are different. In fact, one of the important functions of government is to protect us from the excesses of business.

Sallie: Good point. And I'm trying to imagine a small-business mosquito-abatement program. Nope, can't happen.

Yup. We're in the middle of a perfect storm. Nice expert post.

Nancy, thank you for your clarity, beautifully said (as always). I particularly appreciate your phrase "the veneration of business." I've had grievances about that for quite a while, but I never had pithy words for it.
