Don has a great piece on the ridiculousness of NYC Mayor Bloomberg’s heavy-handed approach to trimming The Big Apple’s waistline.

Russ also has a great piece on the great pseudoscience known as macroeconomics. Specifically, it is on the failure of employment models and thus the inability for any politician (or anybody, but politicians and pundits do this most commonly) to say with any credibility whatsoever that job were created (or lost) because of any particular policy action.

Nice work guys. This is why I love hanging out at the Cafe! Ethan and Chuck would be regulars.
