      So, in June 30 percent of Americans couldn’t make their rent. July 25th, federal eviction protection ends. There may be another check, but another $1,200 (or even $2k) isn’t going to cut it, just as people couldn’t pay rent event with the $600 unemployment benefit top-up. Covid now has more active cases than the previous […]

Con Air Open Thread

I just wanted an excuse to post this video.

What are you doing this evening?

CALLING FOR A MUCH NEEDED INTERVENTION!

shopping-online

I love shopping online! I have to ask myself , could I get any more indolent than I am now? I mean, how much easier can they make it for you then by keying in your credit card number (and in many instances they remember it for you for God’s sake!) while all you are required to do is just hit the “Submit” button and wait for the latest thing to arrive. It’s like Christmas all year round!

I must have been bored this week because I was very busy as you will see. It even required my credit card company to call and ask if these purchases were actually mine. Yes, yes, I replied, not to worry, I was just in that kind of mood.

My ink cartridge to my printer went dry so I ordered a new one online to the tune of $26.00 and the roll started from there.

The undercounter radio that I have had for about 12 years suddenly stopped working. I loved that radio which also came with a light and timer. Off I went to the computer in search of a new one and found almost the exact same item only this time upgraded to contain a c.d. player and an instant weather report! Order placed, address given, credit card recorded, and “submit”. Easier then fighting the crowds. And who can actually go without having an instant weather report at their fingertips? This item had my name engraved right on it. Continue reading

To Paul K with love

So Krugman says:

The magazine cover effect

I’ve long been a believer in the magazine cover indicator: when you see a corporate chieftain on the cover of a glossy magazine, short the stock. Or as I once put it (I’d actually forgotten I’d said that), “Whom the Gods would destroy, they first put on the cover of Business Week.”

. . . . Presumably the same effect applies to, say, economists.

You have been warned.

Could he be talking about this from Tennessee Guerilla Women?

Newsweek Cover: “OBAMA IS WRONG: The Loyal Opposition of Paul Krugman”
Paul Krugman — who as far as I can see is right about everything — is on the cover of the forthcoming Newsweek. The choice of the cover story — Obama’s Nobel Headache — is explained in a letter to readers by Newsweek Editor Jon Meacham.

Joseph Cannon isn’t going to forget. . . . (and neither will I) Continue reading
