Money

If you estimate the population of the United States to be about 350,000,000, including those who are there illegally, then the 700-billion bail-out package works out to $2000 for every man, woman and child. What the government should have done was write out a check for $2000 to all legal residents of the United States, then with the money left over, stage a nation-wide telethon, hosted by Alex Trebek, trying to raise money for the banks. Then donations could be voluntary. Alex could travel to the various banks and do profiles on the executives, showing their plights and allowing the public, voluntarily, to use their $2000 checks to sponsor a bank president. Just a thought.
