Dogs Of Kvetch

Sometimes commentary on what looks very much like recession or an impending one at least can make you chuckle as when Will Wilkinson says "And the upside of pain is complaining about it; a bona fide recession is a license to let slip the dogs of kvetch" Loved the dogs of kvetch and remembered the passage from Julius Caesar which inspires the line.

And Caesar's spirit, ranging for revenge,
With Ate by his side come hot from hell,
Shall in these confines with a monarch's voice
Cry 'Havoc,' and let slip the dogs of war;

Maybe we Cry 'Recession At Last', when the punditry massage the numbers, read their tea leaves and do whatever other mumbo jumbo it takes to be a "bona-fide recession".
