Michael Tomasky on Paul Krugman

Casting about for a Friday Front subject came to an end almost as soon as it began when I came across Michael Tomasky’s review of Paul Krugman’s The Conscience of a Liberal. I can see you yawning from here: you already know what Mr Krugman has to say, and what Mr Tomasky has to say about it.

But, no: you don’t. I chose Mr Tomasky’s review because it was, against all likelihood, a surprise. I’m used to being on the same wavelength as Mr Krugman, but I didn’t know that the wavelength was quite so far-reaching.

I hope that you’ll listen, because this PodCast inaugurates the embellishment of what in broadcasting are called an “intro” and an “outro.” Over the sound of Emmanuel Chabrier’s “Idylle” you’ll hear the clear and beautiful voice of this site’s principal booster, my dear Kathleen.

    Two beautiful, soothing voices on a PodCast. Is this collaboration the first of many to come?

    Excellent job, Team Keefe! Congrats!

    It all flows very nicely.

    Very very nice indeed, Team Keefe, well done! Of course, as I am also singing in the choir, I can only nod in agreement and shout out an ‘Amen’ or two, and then perhaps add sexism to the racism underlying the systematic undermining of the Liberal cause. I too detested Reagan, so the whitewashing of that miserable man and his era makes me crazy. And ditto, and ditto.
    On a happy note, you reminded me to renew my nyrb subscription, which had unaccountably lapsed.
    Again, well done.

    Well, your new lead in announcer certainly has the voice and the presence on the air that I like, a quality that I so admire in you. I look forward to hearing more of her, much more. I’m afraid I’m so totally lost in the sheer pleasure of hearing your voice, a voice I used to listen to for hours on end, albeit for only minutes during each hour, during the day in Houston at KLEF, that I’ve not paid much attention to the content other than to be able to say in my best truck driver patois, “Yeah, what he said.”
