Ricky Gervais has cast himself perfectly as the hero of "The Invention of Lying." Playing mild-mannered Mark Bellison, the first fellow to practice the art of prevarication in an alternate world where everyone tells the truth, he's a master of covert-ops entertainment. He uses his deceptively mild voice and liquid gaze to shift emotional gears without clanking. As the aspiring writer-actor in "Extras," he always seemed to be carrying on a conversation with himself while also talking to others.

Looking at the history of runaway government spending, a disturbing pattern is readily discernible: There is never a lack of observers at a given time who understand the severity of the trouble at hand, but these people lack the power to cut costs and avert calamity. An observer at the time of Imperial Spain's unwinding more than three centuries ago commented on the failure of every attempt at real reform, writing, "Those who can will not and those who will cannot." This truism is tested time and again through history.
