    Now we have a "fiscal cliff," and the Republican leadership was desperate to avoid it because they know the media blames Republicans when they won't go along with Democrat demands. The Democrats can let it happen because it puts the Republicans under more pressure to compromise.
    The "fiscal pothole" — a more apt name — will be fixed after the politicians get what they want from it.
    Now, we need a name for the coming situation when we can no longer borrow enough money to pay the interest on the national debt. That will make "fiscal cliff" look like a curbstone. — Ira Edwards, Medford
