Why Do I Get the Feeling We're Watching a 1950s Sci-Fi Flick?

We find out, yesterday, that the must-pass-now or Earth-will-implode legislation — the "bailout" of last month — was not implemented as planned, and probably never will be. Herr Professor Doctor Heinrich Paulson, senior fellow at the Sam Jaffe Basement Economic Laboratory, is still apparently in charge of formulating whatever "plan" will actually, probably, some day be used.

Do I have that right?

I am reminded of nothing so much as the sci-fi flicks of the 1950s wherein a lone scientist — assisted by his small but loyal band of minions, often relatives and pupils — employs his inventive genius to save the planet from catastrophe.

Those movies aren't very realistic, are they?

Just wondering....
