Ah, good plan!

From an article collecting suggestions from readers re. the economic crisis:

Patriotic retirement: There are about 40 million people over 50 in the work force … pay them $1 million apiece severance with stipulations. They leave their jobs. Forty million job openings — unemployment fixed. They buy new American cars. Forty million cars ordered — auto industry fixed. They either buy a house or pay off their mortgage — housing crisis fixed.
Where do I sign?

We can only go up from here.

The person who responds to this as a serious suggestion and harumpshs over it brings the prize out of retirement.

If I had taken it seriously, all you would have seen was a rush to the exits.
