The three big American automobile co's GM, Ford and I guess Chrysler went to the bailout committee seeking $13 bn in bailout and by the time it was to be granted they raised the amount to $39 bn.
When the senate said that they might refuse, the co's said that they'll declare bankruptcy. Poor Obama.

One fine day I got a friend of mine asking me to start a comic strip for his newsletter in USA. I said how, I am not an NRI for have ever been there to observe it's people (What the TV says is not always true, there are a few normal Americans). He said no worries, we'll do some strips from my experiences and we'll ask the readers to contribute their stories for the rest. He assured me that USA is a funny place. I started work. Then recession started and his newsletter stopped even before a single strip was printed. So here I am with the first few copies in limbo.

I am not much of a pub/alcohol culture supporter myself but what Mr.Muthalik has done if goes unabated will create a straightjacket mind of India. Freedom of expression has to be kept alive and under the control of the individual.
