    Good morning, pups. Today we have Cohen and Krugman. Cohen and Krugman. In “Hope in the Abattoir” Mr. Cohen points out that the peoples of the Holy Land are condemned to each other. Realizing that is their only way forward. Prof. Krugman, in “Left Coast Rising,” says there are lessons for the rest of us in the good news from California.

    Here they are. Prof. Krugman didn’t post to his blog yesterday.

    The coffee and tea are ready, the cold drinks are in the fridge, and I’ve got your favorite omelet this morning. My old office called and asked me to take on another of their physicians’ transcription, so I’ve been flooded with work. Apparently the person who was doing it was a month behind… So I’m off to try to get them caught up. Have a great day.

    Good morning, pups. This morning we have just Blow and Kristof since Ms. Collins is off today. Ms. Collins is off today. Mr. Blow has a question in “Paul Ryan and His Poverty Prophet:” Will a new conservative anti-poverty plan, however well-intended, just lead directly to the soup kitchen? Charles, if ZEGS has anything to do with it that’s probably the desired result. Mr. Kristof offers “An Idiot’s Guide to Inequality.” He says if you don’t have time for Thomas Piketty’s comprehensive best seller, here’s a quick five-point take on the gap between the rich and poor.

    Here they are, and

    here’s Krugman’s blog.

    The coffee and tea are ready, the cold drinks are in the fridge, and I’ve got French toast made with challah. What the French are doing is disgusting. If you disagree with Israel that’s fine, and I agree with you. However, raising the specter of Kristallnacht is a revolting display by thugs and morons. Have a lovely day.

    Good morning, pups. God is in his heaven, and all is right with the world. There is nothing to torture ourselves with this morning. Both MoDo and The Moustache of Wisdom are off. Happy days are here again…

    Here’s Krugman’s blog.

    The coffee and tea are ready, the cold drinks are in the fridge, and I’ve got a full breakfast buffet set up to celebrate not having to face MoDo and TMOW. This is when I would usually take a cup of tea out into the garden but it’s so revoltingly humid out there that it’s like trying to breathe warm mayonnaise. Sigh… Have a great day.

    Good morning, pups. This morning we have just Cohen and Nocera since Bobo and Bruni are off today. In “The Suns of August” Mr. Cohen says bodies rot, looters roam, and the Russian-enabled downing of Flight 17 marks the nadir of the West. Mr. Nocera has a question: “Did Dodd-Frank Work?” He says we really have no way of knowing whether “too big to fail” is still with us until we have another crisis.

    Here they are, and

    here’s Krugman’s blog.

    The coffee and tea are ready, the cold drinks are in the fridge, and I’ve got a variety of bagels with cream cheese this morning. It’s been pouring rain recently, and I’m hoping I have a chance to get the garbage out (it’s collection day) and not get drenched. As a matter of fact, it’s not raining right at the moment, so I’m going to seize the time. Have a great day.

    Good morning, pups. Mr. Blow is off today, so Prof. Krugman has the floor solo. In “The Fiscal Fizzle” he says the deficit scolds are still going at it, even though the whole panic turned out to be a false alarm.

    Here he is, and

    here’s his blog.

    The coffee and tea are ready, the cold drinks are in the fridge, and the biscuits are out of the oven. I’ve got some work to finish up because I spent part of yesterday not feeling well, curled up in bed. It’s got to be finished this morning, so I’m off. Have a great day.

    Good morning, pups. Ms. Collins is off today, so Mr. Nocera has the place to himself. In “The $300,000 Drug” he says a miracle cystic fibrosis treatment carries a heavy price.

    The coffee and tea are ready, the cold drinks are in the fridge, and I’ve got your favorite omelet this morning. Life is good. The angel food cake came out well for a first try (maybe 5 minutes more in the oven wouldn’t have hurt, or maybe a slightly hotter oven). This gives me something to do with the egg whites left over from making ice cream. It’s good when things balance out. Have a great day.

    Good morning, pups. Today we have Cohen and Krugman. Mr. Cohen says “Germany Is Weltmeister” and that Germany is different. It does not believe in quick fixes. Its World Cup team and its society reflect that. In “Addicted to Inflation” Prof. Krugman says the right is obsessed with the claim that runaway inflation is either happening or about to happen.

  • Good morning, pups. Today we have Blow and Kristof. In “Tears For the Border Children” Mr. Blow says their fate has been consumed by political theater and callous fabrication. This is not the best face of a great nation. We are more honorable than this. Well, Mr. Blow, some of us are, and some of us are the Mole People… In “Leading Through Great Loss” Mr. Kristof says those who have lost the most and have the biggest reason for revenge in the Middle East offer the greatest wisdom.

    Good morning, pups. Today we have Dowd and Friedman. In “Where’s the Oval Avatar?” Ms. Dowd babbles that the day may come when a candidate’s hologram could appear in your kitchen and talk about education issues. The Moustache of Wisdom, in “Order vs. Disorder, Part 2,” says the Israeli-Arab conflict has become a miniature of the most relevant divide in the world today.

    The coffee and tea are ready, there are cold drinks in the fridge, and I’ve got a variety of bagels with cream cheese today. If you like it I’ve also got some cream cheese with fresh herbs from the garden. The herbs are all going crazy this year, much to my delight. Have a great day.

    Good morning, pups. This morning we have just Cohen and Nocera since Bobo and Mr. Bruni are off today. In “Israel’s Bloody Status Quo” Mr. Cohen says the Jews and Arabs of the Holy Land are led by men too small to effect change. In “Helping Big Companies Compete” Mr. Nocera explains why killing the Export-Import Bank would be damaging to the economy.

  • Good morning, pups. Today we have Blow and Krugman. In ” ‘The Buck Stops With Me’ ” Mr. Blow has a question. He says the president has taken responsibility for the country’s problems many times. Have Republicans? Jeez, Mr. Blow, the question is enough to make a cat laugh. Prof. Krugman, in “Obamacare Fails to Fail,” says the Affordable Care Act’s huge success is largely slipping under the radar.

    Good morning, pups. Today we have Nocera and Collins. In “American Apparel Is a Lesson in How Not to Run a Company” Mr. Nocera says the juvenile antics of American Apparel’s founder finally catch up with him. Ms. Collins has some “Rules to Run By.” She says there’s good news, people! There have already been many insightful and helpful hints gleaned from this election year that we can now share with 2014 hopefuls.

    Good morning, pups. Today we have Brooks, Cohen and Krugman. Bobo has a question in “Baseball or Soccer?” He asks if your life more like a baseball game or a soccer match, and says you might be surprised. “Jack Chicago” from Chicago wasn’t surprised. In his comment he said “I find myself ill-prepared for another trite ‘life as a sport analogy’. The entire column is simplistic and lacking in any depth.” In “Fat Britain” Mr. Cohen says once we’ve found our lunch our instinct is to avoid becoming someone else’s. Prof. Krugman asks “Who Wants a Depression?” He considers “sadomonetarism,” the interests of the 0.01 percent and the politicization of economics.

    The coffee and tea are ready, and I’ve got waffles with warm maple syrup today. It’s Friday — TGIF. Have a great one.
