I was shocked to find a Trader Joe's here. I associate it with LA. But where the hell are the fire nuts?
How big a penalty should we charge economists at their national convention when they walk three blocks into a restaurant still wearing their name tags? Mrs. Mojito say "oh, that must be an economist." "Well, he's wearing a tag, that's cheating." And pointless. As I pointed out two years ago, "find the economist" is an easy game for veterans of the AEA meetings.
If you get a room on the elite level of a hotel and are interviewing in your room, how do they get there? The interviewees don't have a passkey. A government economist asked that tonight. Hooboy.
Anyway, that's all from here for tonight.
