In “This Isn’t Tax Policy; It’s a Trump-Led Heist” Mr. Kristof says for all of the president’s talk of helping ordinary Americans, they’re not the big beneficiaries of his plan.  Ms. Collins has a question in “Trump’s Can’t-Do Record:”  Who expected 100 days of dull?  Well, maybe for different values of dull…  Here’s Mr. Kristof: What […](image)

Well, it doesn’t get much better than this.  The Moustache of Wisdom enjoying being “On a Par 5 in Dubai, Good Humor and a Respite From All Things Trump.”  Oh — he also tells us that there’s this yogi with a flowing white beard and golf clothes.  Think I’m kidding?  Here he is: President Trump has […](image)

In “The Jane Addams Model” Bobo gurgles that we should be learning to do good from the master.  And “gemli” from Boston will have something to say as well.  Here’s Bobo: These days everything puts me in mind of Jane Addams. Many of the social problems we face today — the fraying social fabric, widening inequality, […](image)

Blow and Krugmanmgpaquin

Mon, 24 Apr 2017 12:58:41 +0000

In “Resiliance of the Resistance” Mr. Blow says not only is the movement against Trump still strong, but it appears to be getting stronger.  Prof. Krugman considers the “Zombies of Voodoo Economics” and says they’re still eating brains after all these years.  Here’s Mr. Blow: The resistance to the travesty of Donald Trump’s presidency is holding up […](image)

Bobo is wailing over “The Crisis of Western Civ.”  He moans that faith in the West has collapsed and, amazingly, people have been slow to rise to defend it.  There will be a response from “Dana” in Santa Monica.  Prof. Krugman, in “The Balloon, the Box, and Health Care,” says it’s not surprising Republican repeal-and-replace efforts keep […](image)

Blow, Kristof, and Collinsmgpaquin

Thu, 20 Apr 2017 12:37:55 +0000

In “A Fake and a Fraud” Mr. Blow says Trump’s philosophy as president might best be described as clan over country.  In “The North Korea-Trump Nightmare” Mr. Kristof says it’s scary to consider what a frustrated president could do.  Ms. Collins is “Paging the Trump Armada” and says it’s not easy to misplace a flotilla.  Here’s Mr. Blow: […](image)

In “Coal Museum Sees the Future; Trump Doesn’t” The Moustache of Wisdom says the president is focused on prolonging a dying industry rather than on renewable energy, which is making the country stronger without him.  Here he is: Did you catch this gem on CNN.com from April 6? “The Kentucky Coal Mining Museum in Benham, owned […](image)

Bobo has decided to tell us all about “How to Leave a Mark on People.”  He ‘splains that some organizations are thick, and some are thin. Some leave a mark on you, and some you pass through with scarcely a memory.  There will be a brief but pithy response from “Jim Wallace” in Seattle.  Here’s Bobo: […](image)

Krugman’s blog, 4/14/17mgpaquin

Mon, 17 Apr 2017 12:24:42 +0000

There was one post on Friday, “In Praise Of Nursing:” For some reason I’m suddenly getting a lot of mail about a sloppy and insensitive thing I did in passing in a blog post a while back. I was writing about what kind of work would survive digital technology, and described nursing among other things […](image)

In “100 Days of Horror” Mr. Blow says access, inclusion and justice are being assailed by Trump.  Prof. Krugman asks “Why Don’t All Jobs Matter?” and addresses economic pain, beyond coal and manufacturing.  Here’s Mr. Blow: With Donald Trump’s 100th day in office fast approaching, White House staffers are reportedly trying desperately to “rebrand” the colossal […](image)
