The first of many

I'm sure we'll all see a lot of these montage videos of the famous folks we lost in '10, but I'm going to post this one b/c CNN focused on those who impacted our national politics.

Interesting that they lead with Haig. Very influential in three GOP administrations. I will miss Bobby Byrd. Elizabeth Edwards' story is just tragic. Terrible, really.

Snow job

If this story turns out to be true, then Bloomberg better show half the testicular fortitude of Reagan (a la the air traffic controller strike) and s-can a bunch of people. Calling for a slowdown in plowing efforts is dangerous to public safety and flat out unacceptable. In my sister's neighborhood alone it caused her downstairs neighbor to nearly be unable to get to the hospital to give birth.

I know one thing - Giuliani would have put his foot deep up someone's ass over this.

As 2010 draws to a close...

it's fitting to remember the high points of the past year.

At #1, Antoine Dodson:

Hide ya kidz, hide ya wife, and hide ya husb, becoz they raping errbody out here.

And of course, it would be incomplete to recall this event without noting this genius effort to distill Dodson's wisdom into its purest form:

T-Paw's in it to win it.

Gov. Pawlenty, currently wrapping up a farewell tour in his homestate is preparing to run for President. Or tend bar for chicks in bikinis.

You be the judge:

"If I don't run for president I'm going to open a margarita bar in south Florida and play Kenny Chesney music," Pawlenty told KAAL-TV in Rochester, Minnesota on Tuesday.

Metrodome roof collapses!

No mention of injuries, which is just hard to believe. Imagine if this had happened at gametime?

Wow. You'd think they would have engineered it with this type of thing in mind. Snow in Minneapolis doesn't sound that unsual to me.

On the flip side, kudos to the teams for having the judgment to postpone the game. They weren't exaggerating the risk, and weren't willing to look the other way.

Explaining QE2

From an 11/30/2010 speech delivered by Benn Steil, winner of the 2010 Hayek award:

To grasp what we are getting ourselves into, consider this analogy: Imagine you get into the shower, turn on the water, and nothing comes out. You call the plumber. He tells you there's a hole in the pipe, and it will cost you a thousand dollars to repair it. You tell him just to turn up the water pressure instead.

Sound sensible? Well, this is the logic behind QE2, the Fed's strategy to keep flooding the money pipes until credit starts flowing freely again from banks to businesses.

Politico on T-Paw

This article contains a lot of meaty info on how Gov. Pawlenty is positioning himself to run in 2012. More later...

Can't wait to hear the songs...

Well, D.C., at least you'll be back in the area from time to time. Gonna have to fit this one into the calendar, me thinks:

Move over, Sweeney Todd -- another singing psycho is nearing his Broadway debut.

The tale of Patrick Bateman -- a fictional Wall Street banker obsessed with designer clothes, Phil Collins, rape and murder -- is going to drench the Great White Way in blood in "American Psycho: The Musical," producers of the show told The Post.
