Everyone is talking jobs but saying nothing. The inadequate recovery is sputtering and no one is doing anything. In the phony war on unemployment, no one has picked up a gun. We're going through the motions, waiting for the misery to ratchet up, the cities to blow and corporate profits to tank before getting serious. As it happens, there really isn't much of a secret about what needs to be done. The only question is how deep the crisis must go and how crippling the pain must be before action is taken. What was Churchill's famous quote? Something like Americans will do the right thing, after they have exhausted all the other alternatives. Well, let's hope he's right.
