Paulson's paltry plan

Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson proposes to deal with the financial mess in the country mostly by consolidating agencies.

This may seem like a harmless, if ineffective, feint to fool the country into thinking the federal government is actually doing something, but it could be worse than that.

Remember Homeland Security? After 9/11, President Bush consolidated law enforcement agencies into that one bloated, inefficient, buffoonish and sometimes corrupt organization.

Although it would be a very good thing not to repeat that experience, it appears we may be headed to Homeland Security, the Sequel.
