We’re going out to clean the pasture spring!

MONDAY, DECEMBER 23, 2013

Christmas lands on the 25th: The analysts tell us that Christmas lands on the 25th this year.

For that reason, we’re going out to clean the pasture spring! We don’t expect to post again until Saturday.

We leave you the post directly below, concerning test scores in D.C. and the desire to say they don’t count.

  2. For when you get back. Salon names names! ("It just isn't done.") The problem is... there is no there there. Each name is followed by a short critique woefully lacking in any real journalistic explication. Perhaps this can be forgiven; it would have created a novel-length discourse (hint).

    One extra-sad note: Obama has named Barro as a favorite, but not Krugman?!!!!! That really tells you all you need to know.

    1. Krugman actively supported Hillary in 2008, was contemptuous toward Obama, and basically said his supporters were suckers. He appeared on the cover of Newsweek under the headline, OBAMA IS WRONG. Like everyone else, Presidents are human.

    2. Right, some of us knew all we needed to know about Obama before the 2008 election.
