Quickly, as I have work to do.
Megan McArdle makes a joke about the death of journalism, her ostensible profession. I doubt her friends losing jobs are laughing. McArdle can afford to be callous because her job is provided by an extremely wealthy man. Next she says we're giving Europe a free ride and "we should rub it in a bit more." She speculates if she missed calling a bottom, and walks it back in the next post about unemployment. Good thing she didn't risk being wrong! Finally McArdle makes another joke about people being out of jobs, and praises a journalist only respected by people who were entirely wrong about the economic crises.
I wonder what her recently-jobless "housemate" thinks about all the unemployment cracks.
