Brooks on a roll

February 6th, 2009

Last year, I thought David Brooks might have lost it. Fortunately, I think the change in the Presidency has breathed new life into his columns. Today, his analysis of the politics and policy of the stimulus package in the NYT is spot on.

Let’s hope the center holds, and we can jettison stale liberal spending plans and focus the stimulus package on getting the economy working again and bring some creative Republicans and conservatives back into the conversation.

Let’s go metric!

January 15th, 2009

I think the spirit of the economic stimulus package is: let’s spend money on all the tasks that we need anyway. In that spirit, my mother-in-law proposed that we convert to the metric system. I think it is a wonderful proposal! It will create jobs and economic growth in the short-term, while certainly being a wise investment in enhancing future productivity.

Goodbye, pounds and inches; hello, grams and meters!
