Morgan Stanley Boss: You're nuts if you're not back in the office!

I know it's a link to the Post but I think it's an interesting topic. Will a young person's career suffer from not being physically around mentors?


I was wondering whatever happened to Bernhard Goetz.

I'm posting this in case anyone else was curious too. It was all I could find out.


Up On the Roof - The Drifters

Judge orders pro Trump Attys. to pay $180000 for frivolous lawsuit.


Sometimes the court system works.

How will the Covid pills change the pandemic?

Well, I see that what one of them might do is going to make wing nut heads spin. Enjoy:


Some of the mavens are thinking endemic sometime in the first quarter of 2022. Even Dr. Faucci thinks it's possible.

The mavens say November opinions are quite rare. Could be the Texas Abortion cases.

The Democratic Coalition

Pew Research did a survey this summer to identify who Democrats are (They also did one for Republicans). It makes for some interesting reading:


Democratic Mainstay here. I took the quiz.

A 4 trillion BBB bill?

Steve Rattner is a Democrat and currently makes a modest living investing Michael Bloomberg's money for him. He had a column in the NYT the other day whose theme is that Joe Biden's three big bills are causing inflation. I didn't think much of the column so I won't link to it.
However the column did site to a study by some committee for responsible government that criticizes the House passed BBB for the use of budget gimmicks. The idea is that the bill projects revenue over ten years but spending costs over a much shorter period. I site this not for the reason that responsible government types do to oppose deficit spending. I don't have a problem with deficit spending in this instance.
I put up the link to show that they believe the spending involved (provided the spending provisions get renewed over the next decade) is in excess of 4 trillion dollars. So the proposed bill comes a lot closer to what Progressives had originally hoped for than people realize.


Well, maybe I've got it wrong. It's late at night, I can't sleep so I start having these strange thoughts.
