Monday Night Links

with 3 comments

I’ve almost got the blog looking okay, though some older posts are likely to display oddly for some time. Let’s have a few quick links.

* I have to admit to some mixed feelings about the revelation that one of 2008’s most odious mass-media obsessions, the cost of John Edwards’s haircuts, was pushed by the Obama campaign.

* Bob Herbert tackles the fierce urgency of infrastructure spending.

* There aren’t any jobs. Brad DeLong now spitballs the chance of another Great Depression at 5%. Hope the Democrats really do get that jobs bill through fast.

  1. Any theories as to why a new entry shows up three times in the RSS feed? Maybe it’s only me.

  2. I hope it’s only you. Which of the feeds are you using?

  3. I like to think that the Edwards affair was known, and they considered that out of bounds and figured it was a bit classier (and just as effective) to go after the haircut.
