N.J. Gov. Jon Corzine takes the marbles out of his mouth long enough to explain the economic crisis:
"Now the piper is coming home to roost," Corzine said. "We have to pay that piper."
But why did the piper cross the road, and will he find a place to roost there, and do we have to pay him then, too? I think the piper in New Jersey has flown the coop.
But don't count your pipers before they hatch.
