Finally, he makes sense

This could explain a lot.


April Fools. :)

The word cynical-- I do not think it means what you think it means. It's accepted meaning is to be inherently skeptical, always questioning, and more than a little pessimistic. Apparently you're working from some other definition-- one where insulting an economist like Krugman for not having dates in high school passes for smart, interesting parody. You might not like what he has to say, but at least his work is always fact-based and he's far from a demagogue.

But from what I've read here you really don't qualify as a cynic-- even using very low standards. Try to find something that actually suits you.

Yeah, yeah, yeah...

If H.L. Mencken were alive today.. oh, how he would be frosty towards the likes of Paul Krugman. Reading Krugman's column twice weekly would make Mencken, dare I say it, even more cynical.

Obviously an April Fool's Joke. Good one, too!

LOL! Of course, were Krugman to ever put forth a column like that, the Times would declare he was, again, on hiatus with yet another book and republish a 'Best of Brent Scowcroft' piece criticizing the Bush administration in its place.

Always have a backup.
