Another plan for the Iraq transition... 

The Onion proposes splitting the $87.5 billion for reconstruction among the entire citizenry of Iraq:

The 14-member Allawi family in Tikrit received $49,628.74 Monday.

"I'm very excited," Ahmed Allawi said. "A free, unregulated market will swiftly and efficiently lead to the establishment of an array of fairly priced goods and services. Any day now, there should be something available to spend this money on. As for today, the open-air market down the street is still on fire."

If you believe in starting your day with a hard laugh, read the whole thing.
