whopper junior ?

in many a movie, a character or plot aspect is introduced early in the story, then goes unseen/un-noted until brought back at the end for a dramatic embellishment that makes a much more powerful impression.

i've seen Obama do such things during the course of his campaigns. thus i suspect we will see the return of one particular plank at the very end of the stimulus bill's formation. but for now, it is a distraction that must be sent away for awhile.
