Fed Speak Translated to English

Cone pointed to this earlier and I think it's brilliant.  It's a site that translates the Federal Reserve's recent announcement (something to do with $600 billion) into plain English.  Example:

This: "Information received since the Federal Open Market Committee met in September confirms that the pace of recovery in output and employment continues to be slow."

becomes this: "The economy still sucks."
