Yes, These Men Will Save The World Economy

Financial Meltdown Summit Featured Lavish Dinner Menu, $300 Bottles of Wine

"The White House said the menu included fruitwood-smoked quail with quince gastrique; quinoa risotto; thyme-roasted rack of lamb; tomato, fennel and eggplant fondue; a salad course of endive, baked brie and walnuts; and a pear torte to cap the meal.
Among the wines: bottles of Shafer Cabernet “Hillside Select” 2003 — about $300 per bottle — for the main course and the much cheaper Landmark Chardonnay “Damaris Reserve” 2006 for about $40 per bottle with the appetizer course. The Chandon DEtoile RosDe sparkling wine that accompanied dessert runs around $30 a bottle."

Grotesque isn't it. Especially with millions dying of starvation every year because of the polices these people put in place. I have started a blog-just yesterday and gave your blog a thumbs up along with some others. When I get things sorted out a bit more I will give you the address. Hope you and everyone who comments here is doing great-Devin
