You are way behind. The Fed is God's embassy to America as in "In God We Trust". Although I hear the Almighty is unhappy with Greenspan, because he (God) thinks Greenspan thinks Greenspan is God. God is hesitant in calling Greenspan back because it may get crowded up there. The Pope apparently told Clinton in St Louis that he (Pope) is concerned that God is suffering from a delusion that he is Greenspan.
