I thought that the legal principle of not shouting "Milton Friedman" in a crowded policy meeting had already been established.

Where have you gone Oliver Wendell Holmes, a nation turns its lonely eyes to you.

And just an update to the "Speaking of Which" file.

George Kell has died. A contemporary of both the Yankee Clipper and Teddy Ballgame.

Tax Cheat Timmy and Fed chief Bernanke have just finished testimony before Barney Fwank and committee. One question concerned when Tax Cheat Timmy knew about the AIG bonuses. He tap danced, of course, and I find it incredible that as NY Fed chief he was unaware that such contracts exist in the banking world and therefore should have had the sense to ask about them as the AIG deal was being put together. Conclusion: he's either incompetent or a liar.
