The Krugman/Limbaugh Nightmare: President Obama Might Succeed


I am glad Frank Schaeffer wrote this piece. It expresses much of what I've been discussing with family members. I am glad to learn of Krugman's dubious history and know from experience that one need not be anti-intellectual to accurately critique people on either the far left or far right of the political ideological spectrum.



Kudos to Schaeffer for his writing and thinking.

Connections through Books

One of the people who follows me onTwitter The Booklmp led me to a book on POE which falls in one of my many favored genres--bio-mystery. So when I am done with some of the work I've picked up for my self I'll like to read it. I have a kundra Milan book and a historical biography and a history lined up before it. But I know I'll get to it before too long.

I also note that the new president of these United States seems interested in the same political/historical books I've read or have on my to read list. So although I am short, older and out of shape, I have something in common with our energetic, hardworking new president.

I'd kill for Michelle Obama's arms. they are in great shape.

Of course, being younger than I she has learned the habit of caring for herself so she can be able to care for husband and daughters. Clever woman, she!!
