Brooks again

Crises sometimes bring out the best in certain people and certain columnists.   Think Lippman and Reston in the 50's and 60's.  Another spot on, must read from David Brooks in today's Times. Money quote:
This recession is scary and complicated. It’s insane to try to tackle it and dozens of other complicated problems, all in one piece of legislation. Leadership involves prioritizing. Those who try to do everything at once will end up with a sprawling, lobbyist-driven mess that does nothing well.
