Paul Krugman on the standoff in Wisconsin (which is spreading to Ohio, Indiana, and elsewhere):
The fiscal crisis in Wisconsin, as in other states, was largely caused by the increasing power of America’s oligarchy. After all, it was superwealthy players, not the general public, who pushed for financial deregulation and thereby set the stage for the economic crisis of 2008-9, a crisis whose aftermath is the main reason for the current budget crunch. And now the political right is trying to exploit that very crisis, using it to remove one of the few remaining checks on oligarchic influence.

I'm hosting another InDigest 1207 reading tonight. I'm writing this late at night and I'm tired. I think it's going to be our best one ever. Don't miss it. Readers will be Darin Strauss, John Reed, and Jim Hanas. It's going to be funny. It's going to be sad. It's going to be at 7pm at LPR.

We're doing a Radio Happy Hour episode on Valentine's Day, and you should come if you're in NYC. It's going to feature Abe Vigoda, Marcellus Hall, and Ted Alexandro. It's going to be great.
