Moment of Bliss

I was driving to Portland this morning. Tired. Sore from falling on the trail twice last week. Nervous I was going to be late to all my appointments. And then the news came on and I heard: Paul Krugman has won the Nobel Prize for economics. This is an absolute repudiation of neoconservative economics—of Bush's economics. I was so happy.

On the downside, Krugman thinks the end of the world is coming, economically speaking, and we are all in for a bumpier ride. But for now, I'm just in bliss that he won.
