If a meteor falls from the sky and shatters a million square feet of glass and no one is there to hear it, does it make a noise? In a town of one million people near the Urals in Russia, today’s meteor by breaking the sound barrier, shattered glass and sent 944 people to the local hospital for care. If those people had not existed, the breaking of the sound barrier and/or the shattering of the glass would have definitely made noise. No one needs to be there to witness the noise. So, if a tree falls in the forest (or anywhere else), does it make a noise? The resounding answer is YES!

That concludes our physics lesson for today. Now for our economic lesson. When Congress passes legislation that negatively impacts us, does any one notice it?
