SOMETIMES YOU WIN ONE
Since those of us on the left lose so many fights, we need to have a little celebration when we win a battle, however small. Defeating Obama's bad idea to appoint Larry Summers as Chairman of the Federal Reserve is a victory. It is not, in the larger scheme of things, a big victory. It will not alter the basic structure of the American economy. But it is a victory. And since Summers is, among other things, a pig, it is an appropriate victory during Yom Kippur. So, I raise a glass of Clos de Bois cabernet to the Gods, and thank them. Sometimes you win one.
