    St. Louis isn’t THAT bad.

    If you’re poor or middle class, move OUT of New York.

    A ha, WRM quotes M Mcdoodle, but will she quote WRM?

    “St. Louis isn’t THAT bad.”

    If you live around Forest Park. But the north part of town….

    Re: NY

    Upstate should have seceded a long time ago.

    I assume McArdle explained the “Deregulation” she had in mind. You don’t, why not? If it’s financial services regulations either of you has in mind, “Deregulation” has been far from a panacea. Hopefully we are beginning to learn that, as in most things it takes a lot of skill and practice to get right, and unlike other things, it is best not practiced full scale, trial by fire on the lot of us.

    If you live in NY lobby your representatives to allow drilling in the Marcellus Shale. Or freeze in the dark.

    “A ha, WRM quotes M Mcdoodle, but will she quote WRM?”

    I read McDoodle cooking/kitchen stuff, everything else is featherweight fluff.

    But why should quote the Prof?

    Instapundit sends him a lot of traffic and most pieces have 1-5 boring comments.

    In traffic terms this blog does not register.

    The Prof should re-institute weekly beatings of the help and change strategy.

    The current one is not working.

    “New York City (and the state) are up the creek without a canoe.”

    And many will continue paddling furiously, not understanding what went wrong.

    “The bells on Wall Street toll for you and me.”

    In New Yorkese: Oy!

    The precautionary principle applied to government action? What a capital idea! (Cf PPACA.)

  • A whole city living off corruption, eh? Who could have thunk it?
