1. I may have seen an indication this morning during my walk of a seismic shift in French culture. When I passed the row of Batobuses anchored for the night on the shores of the Seine, I noticed that the Jean Gabin and the Yves Montand had been promoted from the rear to the front of the row. If a Simone Signoret shows up, I will know that I am on to something.
2. Magpie posts a long comment today [or last night], reacting to Chris Langton's critique of something I wrote two years ago. Out of curiosity, I went back and read the original post, which was an essay I had actually written long ago called "A Critique of Keynesian Economics." I found my essay quite interesting. I also had absolutely no recollection of ever having written it. There are times when I think I am losing it.
