As to the Calvin Trillin piece, I've been saying exactly the same thing for a couple of years, now. But of course, the rise of the "smart guys" isn't limited to Wall Street. The same Harvard-Yale-Princeton idiots are at the helm in all major industries, with a sizable number split off and infesting their brilliantly misguided incompetencies throughout the federal bureaucracy.

Great article on how the financial secpotr is predatory and why we need reform of the financial sector and more help for the real economy (and less for finance):

Ezra, here's an idea for tomorrow's blog: Howard Fineman of Newsweek smacks Obama in this article "Obama quietly Cozies Up to Health-Care Industry"
http://www.newsweek.com/id/217458?from=rss

Isn't Fineman right in that Obama is the ultimate insider and things are the same as they ever were?

Caught you on Talk of the Nation yesterday by accident, Ezra! Good job! It's my favorite NPR show, so try and get back there more often.
