Let Detroit Go Bankrupt

Mitt Romney(!) in the New York Times:

Without that bailout, Detroit will need to drastically restructure itself. With it, the automakers will stay the course — the suicidal course of declining market shares, insurmountable labor and retiree burdens, technology atrophy, product inferiority and never-ending job losses. Detroit needs a turnaround, not a check.

Wow.

Private Ear Audio Theatre

Not quite done yet, but I wanted to show off this design anyway. My friend Gabe did the wonderful graphics, and I set the text. I’m pretty happy with how the site has turned out so far.

Joe the Grave Digger

Andrew Sullivan:

It hit me the other day what he is. He’s the comic relief in the fifth act of a Shakespearean tragedy. Think the grave digger in Hamlet. Alas, poor McCain. I knew him, Horatio.

Let’s hope.
