What's wrong, sweetie? Your boyfriend's internship is almost up and he can't find a job in the mainstream media?
Jesus! I was just joking, but curiosity made me check her archives.
If it's a recession when your neighbor loses his job, and a depression when you lose yours, the depression just ended for the McArdle-Suderman household. Peter has accepted a Koch fellowship* to work at Reason for the next eleven months, and today's his first day.
That was June of 2009. It's almost May, when P. Suderman's internship evidently runs out.
Arthur Silber is very, very ill and works for free. His work is very nearly the only honest, accurate portrayal of our society that exists. He is one of the very few people who sees clearly, speaks truthfully, and has the mind and heart to understand why we do what we do. And yet McArdle whines about her tea-bagger boyfriend's inability to find a sponsor for his venal, destructive work.
When I--if I--find a job, this blog will cease because I won't have the time or emotional energy. But I'm a jokester, a thorn, a nobody. Silber is worth a hundred of people like me.
