Julie Lyles Carr: Vulcan of the Treasury

Vulcan of the Treasury

Now I don't claim to be really well versed in what needs to happen next in the country.  I don't know how we're going to resolve all those mega-gig overdraft issues with banks.  I don't know what we're going to do with all those houses that are in foreclosure and I haven't the slightest idea as to how to get investors to quit trafficking in hysteria.

But maybe this Timothy Geithner guy is the man to lead the fight as Secretary of the Treasury.

I base my theory not on his experience as president of the Federal Reserve Bank, not in his failure to pay his taxes, not actually based on any of his career moves or tax avoidance.

It's really just about one thing.

The man has got to be part Vulcan.

It was 1 of 8 who first noticed the telltale signs of his origin as we watched some of the confirmation hearings on his appointment.  He cocked an eyebrow, brought his hands together in a classic mind-meld posture and lowered a frosty gaze at the senator who was posing a question to him.

Total Vulcan.

And I found the pictures to prove it.

Exhibit A:


And our favorite Vulcan, Spock, at some sort of Star Trek confirmation hearing...

Don't forget to notice the ears...not trying to be cruel, just pointing out the similarities...
in the national interest, of course...

So hopefully I have done my part to quell your fears about the economy and the tentative confirmation of Mr. Geithner.  Because it's looking like to me that it's gonna take a non-emotional, pragmatic, cool Vulcan to get us out of this present economic mud pit.

And we could be heading where no man has gone before....

Don't I sound cryptic?

I'm very dimensional like that...
