K          “Too much dirt.”

J          “Too few rugs.”

. . .

K          “Sweeping the dirt under the rug may not do it any longer.”

J          “Loom another rug?”

. . .

J          “Manufacture another can?”

K          “In China?  Subject to a tariff?  The road still needs to be repaired before we can kick something down it.”

. . .

J          “Raise another canary?”

K          “The market, not the government, is shuttering the coal mines.”

. . .

K          “The failure of the ‘Repo Market’ may be the Big Jolt.”

J          “Make another Market in its place?  . . .  Maybe not.”
