“Pop quiz, hot shot”

“So, I have a confession and a suggestion. The confession: I go into restaurants these days, look around at the tables often still crowded with young people, and I have this urge to go from table to table and say: ‘You don’t know me, but I have to tell you that you shouldn’t be here. You should be saving your money. You should be home eating tuna fish. This financial crisis is so far from over. We are just at the end of the beginning. Please, wrap up that steak in a doggy bag and go home.’
Is Thomas Friedman confessing:

A) That he is very rich, but young people aren't;
B) That he is stupid, and assumes that the young people he sees eating out eat out regularly;
C) That he is confused and thinks net reduced consumption is a good way to respond to a recession;
D) All of the above

The above wasn't about politics, and therefore this post doesn't violate last Monday's “no politics” announcement:
A) True;
B) False

My favorite quote from Speed is:
A) The title of this post
B) The part where Alan Ruck relays “Fuck me!” as “Oh, darn”
C) “And to Jack for shooting Harry. Something we've all wanted to do for a very long time.”

1. The column also fails to ever again reference the “suggestion” mentioned in the first sentence. I think he means his proposal to have Paulson resign and Geithner take over as Treasury Secretary immediately, but it could also be referring either to the suggestion he wants to make to diners or the fact that if he had his druthers, he'd move inauguration day up to the present (though he says he thinks this is impossible).
