Real Life

I have been very busy lately, and it will get even busier starting tomorrow.

I want to look a bit closer at Andrew W. Mellon, Treasury Secretary under Presidents Harding, Coolidge, and Hoover, but NTodd highlights some of the thinking that would give modern Republicans a fit.

There is no need to even think about Attaturk latest discovery: Rmoney’s belief in Cold Fusion?!?!! Come on, I can almost understand the Confidence Fairy and double-hung airliner windows, but COLD FUSION???!!! I have a bad feeling that this is the linchpin of his energy policy…
