Will You Come To Tea?

Miss Megan McArdle's irrelevance continues, as she indulges in one of her favorite themes; how the hoi polloi should not even try to go to college, and become useful service people instead. When the lady of the manor finishes discussing the servant problem, she moves on to the economy. She has filmed an interesting conversation she and her good friend Dan Drezner had in the drawing room. They discussed "the economy, regulation, and the future of the Republican Party." One could listen in, but one surmises there will be little to learn, and no surprises. Finally Miss McArdle tosses a bon mot into the little crowd of admirers that gathers around her, who titter and eagerly examine her merry observations, while she saunters off to enjoy her day.

It's amusing, reading Megan's thoughts on wasted education, considering she's an English major that writes like garbage and can't even exhibit a quasi-professional grasp of simple spelling and grammar. And what's she got to show for that MBA she likes to remind us all that she has at least once a week? Being duped into a low-paying blogging gig by the Atlantic in exchange for getting to put the title "Associate Editor" on her business cards, that's what! The girl is a genius. Not one penny wasted on *her* education.

Yes, now is the time for her to shine, a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to explain the financial situationand how it affects people--and she can't. All she can do is punt.
