Gone fishin'

I'm hopping on a plane tomorrow to go sit on sand and drink beer and eat fish and stop thinking for a few days about extending the Bush tax cuts.

But you're all in good hands. You know Dylan Matthews, of course. Smart guy, good with graphs. And you probably remember Suzy Khimm, an ace reporter at Mother Jones, from her previous guest-blogging stint. John Sides, a politician scientist at George Washington University and co-founder of the excellent Monkey Cage blog, will be joining them to add some academic flavor to the proceedings. And Justin Fox -- a former economic columnist at Time, current editorial director of the Harvard Business Review and author of the excellent book "The Myth of the Rational Market" -- is coming out of semi-blog retirement to weigh in on all things money.

So it should be fun. I'll be back Aug. 30.

Have a great time. Enjoy yourself, Ezra.

I hardly ever agree with your conclusions, but no one has earned it more than you. Enjoy.

Earned it? No. People who are constantly demanding that others sacrifice, give up their money to Nancy Pelosi so she can pass it around, give up their time for national service and have "skin in the game" need to walk the walk themselves. Klein should have used his vacation time to help clean up the waters in the Gulf, join a Habitat for Humanity effort to rebuild after Katrina, or even help distribute condoms in a junior high. All of these would have been more seemly than "drinking beer."

Here's hoping you've got your toes in the water, ass in the sand, not a worry in the world, a cold beer in your hand.

Don't even think about us. Have a wonderful vacation!
