This Is Your Brain On Drugs, Part II...

Huff enough paint, or inhale enough chemical fumes from the family business, and you're bound to come up with this sort of ridiculous idea. Why,you might even forget that you're a scion of one of America's wealthiest families, that you're writing in the Wall Street Journal, and that no one takes anyone named "Pierre" seriously.

Inject enough of your own smugness,and you just might be able to convince yourself that bringing attention to a business that got $151 million in unpopular Stimulus funds to build something doesn't exist for a product that no one wants to buy is an economic recovery success story, and example of those Green Energy jobs you keep insisting are just around the corner. Speaking of batteries; it looks as if Michelle could use some new ones, if you catch my drift.

Short of falling asleep in vat of LSD, it's difficult to see how you couldn't possibly make a better business decision than this.

Of course, there are those who prefer Opiates to Acid, and if you're one of those, you might think this is both a great idea, and a worthwhile use of government resources. Then again, you might look at who has advocated for it, and decide it might be a good idea to switch to crack.

And speaking of Crack, and it's vise-like hold upon selected segments of the population, we know all-to-well what happens when Crack is allowed to work it's ravages upon these helpless sub-populations; They manage to forget that they live in a technologically-advanced world in which their words and actions have usually been recorded someplace, so that the defense of "I never said/did that" becomes problematic, at best, asinine, at worst. But then again, they're crack users and most-likely high and beyond simple notions of decency, honesty and shame, so there's no reason at all to listen to them.
