I don't think this article is behind the WSJ firewall. But it's just another, random indicator of an economy on the wrong track. Who woulda thunk that the declining value of the dollar would lead to increased demand in dolphin teeth?

Bush Vows To Do 'That Thing Gore Just Said, Only Better'
BOSTON–Responding to debate opponent Al Gore's promise to pay off the national debt in 12 years by devoting $2 of projected surpluses toward debt reduction for every $1 used for tax cuts, George W. Bush vowed to do "that thing Gore just said, only better" during Tuesday's presidential debate. "Yeah, that debt thing," the Republican candidate said during his allotted 90-second rebuttal. "I'm going to do that, but, like, 10 times better." Bush added that, as president, he would "do all that stuff Gore said about education and the environment, but my version would work twice as good."
