G20 Leaders Get Loaded For Poverty

HATS off to Gordon Brown who is half way to fulfilling his pledge to end boom and bust.

Boom is well and truly over. And once we are all poor, bust will only be a historical relative, an arcane term of yesteryear.

So to the White House, where Gordon is at table to discuss matters of great import: when George Bush goes, will he be the most unpopular leader in the world?

The talk turns to the economic crisis,. With dinner keeping their tongue sharp and loose with beverages that cost almost $500 a bottle.

The G-20 summit kicks off with “Fruitwood-smoked Quail,” “Thyme-roasted Rack of Lamb,” and “Tomato, Fennel and Eggplant Fondue Chanterelle Jus.”

All washed down the gizzard with doses of Shafer Cabernet “Hillside Select” 2003, a wine that sells at $499 on Wine.com.
