Major Barbara

Paul Krugman
I don't like Krugman that much but at least his arrogance is not the spineless arrogance of most of the press. A person who calls himself a moderate should be willing to criticize immoderation, but Krugman was for a long time the only one around who asked any questions at all.

I can't think of a precedent. Our government has built itself a house of cards and I no one I think now believes otherwise, even in the White House. This adventure will be remembered as an amalgam of The Vietnam War and Watergate, in effect the Vietnam War AS Watergate- as a criminal conspiracy- having the worst of both and doing more damage than either. The romance behind it all is something that I still can't fathom.
