The New York Times published an article by Heather Timmons on a recent speech by Alan Greenspan to the Group of 7 ministers meeting in London. Entitled "Greenspan Points to Danger of Rising Budget Deficits," the article reminds us of our national failure to control our apetites. When I was a young boy in school, the goad that got me to exercise was "Move it, or lose it." Our out-of-control national spending could benefit from similar advice, "Prune it, or watch it die."
