U.S. Treasury Staves Off New Depression With Movie-Reel Parody that Evokes the Old One

Dear Carla Fran,

I stand corrected. Gawker alerted me today to the fact that the U.S. Treasury has decided to correct the mismanagement of our youth’s financial education. Hurrah!

Their new website, http://www.controlyourcredit.gov/, parodies creepy hotel movies (Barton Fink or similar). The object is apparently to reach Room 850 (the Golden Number for Perfect Credit).

I visited. My computer froze during the fun old-timey black-and-white movie-reel countdown. It stopped on 3. I choose not to read too much into this.

Fondly,
Millicent
