Waiting a long long time:

— The Shaw urban renewal plan.

— Ex-offenders and the labor market.

— Hair Cuttery has an absolute ban on hiring ex-cons.

— I have no problem with giving the Fed and inflation-only mandate; the problem is they’ve been undershooting their inflation target not that they’ve been paying too much attention to it.

— The ideas deficit.

Stiff headwinds.

— Lurking behind Portugal, Greece, and Ireland is Spain, which is too big to rescue.

— People should talk more about the Italian growth disaster; that’s one or two good years out of the past 15.

In honor of the Beatles/iTunes deal, here from the Backbeat soundtrack are some dudes pretending to be the Beatles covering the Marvelettes’ “Hey Mr Postman”.
