A few sacrifices must be made...

Nobel Prize winning economist Paul Krugman reports a good idea for solving the current economic crisis.

My wife suggests that we might try sacrificing a few bankers — central bankers, investment bankers, whatever — to appease the financial gods.

Who knows, it might just work.

And if it doesn't work? Well...would you honestly care? Just make sure to bring plenty of barbecue sauce.

And, while we're at it: here's to wives, who have all the really good ideas!

(Thanks to Andrew for the tip!)

"Just make sure to bring plenty of barbecue sauce."

Ye gads, man! Surely you can't be suggesting that we eat our sacrificial offerings.

Wouldn't think of it.

But in the sacred texts we live by, the gods make clear that they like their offerings spicy.

We've always found this peculiar, but holy writ is holy writ.
