The first three for this:
No Jobs Bill, and No Ideas
It was all predicted, but the unanimous decision by Senate Republicans on Tuesday to filibuster and thus kill President Obama’s jobs bill was still a breathtaking act of economic vandalism. There are 14 million people out of work, […]
$1.2 TRILLION PLAN TO SAVE THE ENTIRE WORLD
Here. And it starts with infrastructure.
How complicated is this, really? A million construction workers out of work, 158,000 bridges and 35,000 schools of modernize – not to mention all the other stuff that needs doing. What are we waiting for? The Senate Republicans vote […]
Opening on Broadway Thursday with Samuel L. Jackson and Angela Bassett, this play about Martin Luther King, Jr. by the remarkable young Katori Hall is not what I expected – I don’t want to give it away by telling you more – and not to be missed.

I’d like to add anger – anger makes me nervous. Anger, […]
I met Steve Jobs once. For a short while, we were neighbors. What a phenomenal contribution he made to the world and to my own life. Talk about a great American!
So the Tea Party folks demonstrate to keep people from having health care, to lay off teachers and police and […]
The smartest bond investor in the world, Bill Gross, seems to be on more or less the same page as the smartest equities investor in the world, Warren Buffett.
