Well there you go, that’s what a New York Times op-ed will do for you. On MSNBC this morning, Mika read a couple of paragraphs from it, and my words appeared on the screen as she read–it was the metaphorical part about the abstemious ant and the feckless grasshopper–and my name was there all along, four minutes worth!
And Joe says “absolutely ridiculous and stupid!” Mika goes into a peroration on consumer excess, indebtedness, and Joe responds “Consumerism! Exactly!”
And then the ever-charming liar Mike Barnicle rescues his bandmates from impending dead air by saying “I wonder if the guy who wrote that has any kids.”
I want on that show. Just so I can tell Mike that yeah, I do.
