D. M. Schorey, Grand Forks, letter: Kudos to Dorgan for bailout vote

GRAND FORKS -- Are we all insane? Apparently, Sen. Byron Dorgan, D-N.D., is one of the few who "get it" ("Plan hurts prudent and helps profligate," Viewpoint, Page A4, Oct. 3).

"Addressing the wildly excessive compensation on Wall Street," "restoring the stability and safety of the banking system" and "developing a system of regulation that would require accountability for the speculative investment activities" would all be steps forward in repairing our financial system.

Remember the S & L scandal? Another Bush family member and John McCain were very involved in that bailout.

I don't know which quote is more appropriate, George Santayana's "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it," or altering Rita Mae Brown, "Insanity is making the same mistake over and over again, but expecting different results."
