I am going to be out of town for the next two days, so I’m not sure how much writing I will be doing here. I’m sure there will be some stuff. There will be the birthday posts, of course. And I’m sure there will be other things I find that I absolutely must share with you. As always, I’ll try to write a bunch of stuff tonight. I actually do have a number of odd things on my mind like professional basketball in the 1960s and The Three Investigators books and something new I learned about Frank Conniff. Plus there will doubtless be any number of political issues that really bug me. So stay tuned. Just keep your expectations low.
It seems I am suffering from another pundit crush. I know, I know! It always turns out badly. They often turn out to be hopelessly naive or worse: clueless. But while searching for articles about the big Republican hearing thud, I discovered Michael Hiltzik at the Los Angeles Times. He writes a blog called The Economy Hub. And the last couple of days have been really good.
By “really good” I mean that he agrees with me. Well, more than that. But we are amazingly in sync in terms of what we’ve written about. For example, his take on Donald Sterling is the same as my take. (Read his take, he knows the historical context far better than I.) His take on Art Laffer’s advice to red states is the same as my take. And his take on the 60 Minutes BP whitewash is exactly the same as my take.

I’ve added him to my daily reading folder. And I will shortly add him to the side bar here. Check him out!
