Falling Into the Economic Chasm
www.nytimes.com
While I can’t say that I blame Obama for his cautious conservatism, borne out of his instinctive impulse to compromise with the Republicans and the Blue Dogs, I think Krugman is right. The stimulus wasn’t enough money spent in the right way, and if the American people hand the economy over to the Repubs, it will be the return of the long down for everyone but the rich.

This is the best use of facebook pull-in data I have seen. It makes you want to vote.

While doing research for photo credits for the Implementation book — trying to dig up the names of various sculptures upon which stickers have been placed — I ran across this site, nice little sculpture walks through Bergen.

A good day of mummitrolls and playing with the kids after travels. Glad to be back in Bergen, though looking forward to ditching the snow to head to Chicago for Trick or Treat later in the week.

Stuck in Copenhagen for the evening due to a canceled flight. There are, I’ll admit, worse places to be stuck in, though I’m ready to see Jill and the kids and sleep in my own bed after a lot of travel this week.

Gave a presentation at the Irish Royal Academy in Dublin today — in a classic 18th century library. It was pretty cool, though I felt like I should been critiquing Johnathan Swift or something rather than talking about websites and databases.

Yet another Norwegian industry devastated. What are we to do with all the fish oil now? You put that stuff in a lamp, it smells.

Recent polls indicate that America is likely to get stuck in a hole, to let the right wing lead towards increasingly draconian disparity between the rich and the poor, but in exchange to enable the poor to smoke marijuana in increasingly legal ways. The rich will get richer, and the poor will get stoned.

Looking forward to going home at the end of the month, both to see family and to cast my absentee ballot in the midterm election, thus canceling out Chuck Stoebig’s vote.

Look, if you were an Ohio Republican, how would you want to spend quality time bonding with your son? There just isn’t a lot to do after the young Republicans bake sale is done for the day.

If the Republicans win big in this midterm election, I’ll move to Norway. Oh, wait, I already did that. If the Republicans take congress, I’ll be unable to use the phrase “Speaker Boehner” with a straight face.

The US war in Afghanistan started October 7, 2001, 9 years and 2 days ago. The Soviet war in Afghanistan lasted from December 27, 1979 until February 15, 1989. Time flies when you’re having war.

I just read that, and I was not at all convinced in any way about anything. What was that, a non-review? Did the writer of the review even read the first page of the book? Sorry I’m complaining but I have no idea about anything but two wasted minutes, and you suggested that i click that? Jesus.

had great fun with old man / new father Anders Fagerjord. He witnessed the birth of his son and turned 40 within 48 hours and then subsequently witnessed a pseudo-German Norwegian Oktoberfest. Poor guy, won’t sleep for the next three months. Congratulations on your son and condolences on your youth.
