"Changing My Name to Chrysler"

I don't claim to be an expert on the economy, but the crisis on Wall Street has me singing along with Arlo Guthrie:
Since the first amphibians crawled out of the slime
We've been struggling in an unrelenting climb
We were hardly up and walking before money started talking
And it said that failure is an awful crime
Well it's been that way for a millenium or two
But now it seems that there's a different point of view
If you're a corporate titanic and your failure is gigantic
Down in congress there's a safety net for you
(actually by Tom Paxton, but I know it from the Precious Friend CDs that pairs Arlo with Pete Seeger)

Check the song out on YouTube.
