The unforgiving minute

In the Bush economy, it's all about nomenclature.

If you steal a $4.99 bottle of over-the-counter sleep medication, you're a shoplifter and you go to jail.

If you destroy hundreds of millions of dollars of shareholder wealth, you're a CEO and you get a seven-figure bonus and a country club membership.

Minute's up.
