Get Well Soon
I'm worried about Megan McArdle. She is flooding us with output which is a good thing, especially in an era of lay-offs, but her tone is very troubled. Medicare is bankrupting us, the economy will only get worse, (a new refrain for her) exercise is useless, bartering for goods is increasing, social security is dying, governments are useless. (More about that last post later.) She has a kind word for bankruptcy laws, but otherwise it's all doom-and-gloom under President Obama. Perhaps watching the journalism business contract at the same time Republican economic policies are undercutting the economy is wearing on her nerves.
