What a surprise. After making posts on proposals, rings and babies, Megan McArdle announces she is getting married. She might as well have a head of glass, since everything that passes through it is laid bare for the public to see.
It's why she's such a good example of how conservatives base political decisions on personal issues. It's not ideology or Libertarianism or an elite education or even God. It's Mom and Dad, and growing up listening to complaints about dishonest unions and those nasty people who are holding back their betters.
McArdle and Suderman will have a child they can't afford and spend every penny they can borrow to give him or her an elite education. They will live on the fringes of an elite society, both part of it and outside it, hanging on through sheer will and cunning. They will be very happy, except when they are not.
UDATE: The blogging about wedding purchases has begun. And there's a tiara.
No, there really is.
