    Reaganomics Finally Trickles Down To Area Man

    HAZELWOOD, MO—Twenty-six years after Ronald Reagan first set his controversial fiscal policies into motion, the deceased president's massive tax cuts for the ultrarich at last trickled all the way down to deliver their bounty, in the form of a $10 bonus, to Hazelwood, MO car-wash attendant Frank Kellener.

    Leading economists say Kellener's unexpected windfall provides the first irrefutable proof of the effectiveness of Reagan's so-called supply-side economics, and shows that the former president had "incredible, far-reaching foresight."

    I love The Onion. I think the funniest headline ever was:
    Bush: 'Our Long National Nightmare Of Peace And Prosperity Is Finally Over'
    Here's the link to it from January, 2001.

    The Onion... ironically, still the best in print periodical of our time.
