See, wasn’t that refreshing?
This is my favorite paragraph:
Our culture forgot that there was once a utility in failure. Failing reminded us of what works and what doesn’t — and how we must learn to avoid the latter. Instead, in our new economic purgatory, no firm, company, state, city, or individual ever quite goes to financial heaven or hell. A Bear Stearns or Chrysler neither succeeds nor fails but just sort of endlessly exists.
Update! With More Love:
For Freeman Dyson. You just have to love a man who would prefer to have an argument than to monologue, as well as having a healthy fear of political money. That’s just sexy. Even if the man in question is 86. There, I’ve said it.
