The next John Stossel (“Bailouts, Big Spending, and Bull,” Friday at 10 on 20/20) is going to be a tour de force.  Not only will you get to see me with big hair and big beard, you’ll also learn about private roads, and get the chance to compare and contrast Ms. American’t (Barbara Ehrenreich of Nickel and Dimed) and Mr. American (Adam Shephard of Scratch Beginnings). 

I still don’t know if Stossel will air anything I said, but if you watch the promo video, you can spot me in the back row.  My best line, whether or not they use it, was roughly, “Something hasn’t worked.  Let’s give nothing a chance.”
