In which a group of graying eternal amateurs discuss their passions, interests and obsessions, among them: movies, art, politics, evolutionary biology, taxes, writing, computers, these kids these days, and lousy educations.

Dear Blowhards --

Finally, a little economic justice.

If I spelled out true justice for Geithner, you wouldn't approve the comment.

I'd like to know if some Goldmanite is paying the rent. 7500 is quite high in a down market. The rent rate for expensive homes falls off very fast, so don't expect normal scaling. I think he's on the take.

sure thing, anon. Perhaps the government should do nothing. Would that be better? Are you sure?

@Ray: of course he's sure. Righties are always absolutely, positively sure about everything. Their haughty, better-than-thou, elitist attitude conveys that well. They also know this financial crisis is absolutely not their fault. Their fiscal theories are completely backed by the fantasies in their heads, they have absolute faith that this is the fault of the left despite all evidence to the contrary. That's why they want to see America fail now, so they can say "see, we told you so". They'll be fine, they've pulled all of the money out of the economy and into their own accounts, so don't you worry about them when you're scrounging in the trash for food. They know exactly what they're doing!

Upstate Guy,
You know what happens when you assume...That comment was Chris White like in the sheer stupidity and lack of thought. Nice work...
