At last, my prayers have been answered! Thank you, Jesus!
Break out the booze, boys, it's time to celebrate!
Megan McArdle is now on book leave!
McArdle's book will explain how failure leads to success, a field in which she has considerable experience. We look forward to the chapters on choosing the right womb, honing interview techniques by making girls cry in the rest room, and the use of shopping therapy to squash any inconvenient twinges of conscience. We expect that the central metaphor will be how five year olds must be able to play with spaghetti or we will end up with 80% less corporate innovation.
The only remaining question is, who will replace the irreplaceable McArdle? Who could ever fill her stylish yet affordable shoes?
The Atlantic is happpy to announce that an empty shirt will take the place of Megan McArdle, who is on book leave. We do not know whether she is writing or reading one.
