Special Map

Over 200 earthquakes in Yellowstone in the last few days, centered on the lake. It seems Wyoming could blow up again.  And it hasn’t done this for 650,000 years. And of course it blew 650,000 years before that one. And 650,000 years before that one. Anyone sensing a pattern here?

As it erupts with the force of 10,000 Mount St. Helenses, another big one would render the Western U.S. uninhabitable.

Paul Krugman is really smart.

“In recent years the finance sector accounted for 8 percent of America’s G.D.P., up from less than 5 percent a generation earlier. If that extra 3 percent was money for nothing — and it probably was — we’re talking about $400 billion a year in waste, fraud and abuse.”

We might have lost 2.7 million jobs in the U.S. in 2008, but at least W. created 100 jobs in Turkey.
