@ @petersuderman A classic example of bias. The Kochs are probably paying you to say that.

Isn't that funny? Those silly leftists and their Koch complaints! How it makes Mr. and Mrs. McArdle giggle to see the Koches pay off the government to avoid punishment for their crimes! To watch Koch refineries release benzene, or see a Koch pipeline blow up and kill a couple kids!
They're one of the top ten polluters in the country but so what? It's not like the McArdles live next to one of their refineries--only poor people do that, and it's not like they were doing anything with their lives anyway! Those silly liberals. It is to laugh.
Also, be sure to read McArdle's ode to the wonderfulness of her charming Victorian rowhouse in a nearly-fashionable neighborhood of DC. She admits she paid too much for it but hey, it's only money. There's plenty more where that came from.
I love the way she calls herself "asymmetricinfo" as though she's rubbing everyone's face in it.
Names are important. Jane Galt, asymmetric information--both are meant to express McArdle's view of herself.
If we sold today, we might get less for the house than we paid for it. But to us, it’s still worth every penny.
No mention of short selling putting her into tens of thousands of dollars of immediate debt that might trap her in a house she can no longer live in.
"asymmetric" is the closest to honest her writing can get. She's a low level courtier who thinks she's a Duchess. Hmm. In many of the English Regency & Mysteries I've read, the servants are more snobby and conceited than the aristo's whose every wish they cater to. Huh.
