— I promise to write about this tomorrow.

What Dana said; what’s more, I don’t think it makes sense to characterized deteriorating labor market conditions as “opting out.” Let’s save that for Ed Prescott.

— General McChrystal isn’t cooperating with right-wing efforts to use him as a bludgeon against Obama; also making sense on Iran.

Song of the day is the Hellacopters “Sign of the Octopus”.
