    Good morning, pups. Today we have Brooks and Nocera. In “No War Is an Island” Bobo tells us that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is largely a proxy war rooted in broader rivalries throughout the Arab world. In “Teaching Teaching” Mr. Nocera states teachers shouldn’t be learning on the job as they go.

    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 today.

    “I did not realize the reinstitution of slavery was considered a positive social development.” Well, I’d suggest we all keep a very close eye on the 2016 Republican Party Platform. There will probably be something along these lines tucked in there. FIFA is just a wee bit ahead of the curve. Have a great day.

    Good morning, pups. Today we have Blow and Krugman. In “The Fight Over ‘Impeachment Lite’ ” Mr. Blow says as politics, House Republicans’ threat to sue the president may work best for Democrats. Prof. Krugman, in “Corporate Artful Dodgers,” takes a look at a loophole so big whole companies can slip through.

    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 the biscuits are out of the oven. I’m not surprised that numerous people were taken in by the parody Bachmann story, which seems perfectly plausible to anyone who’s ever listened to what she says. It wouldn’t surprise me in the least particle to see the idea picked up by what now passes for the “leadership” of the GOP — I’m looking at you, Paul Ryan… Have a great day.

    Good morning, pups. Today we have The Pasty Little Putz, Dowd, Friedman and Kristof. The Pasty Little Putz has a question in “Up From Greenwich:” Can the G.O.P. stop being the party of the rich? Once my cats stopped laughing they pointed out what “mancuroc” from Rochester, NY had to say in the comments: “ [...]

    Good morning, pups. Ms. Collins is off today, so Mr. Nocera has the place to himself. In “Chamber of Commerce Lost Its Way in Right Turn” he says the U.S. Chamber of Commerce is regretting its one-sided support of Republicans.

    Here he is, and

    here’s Krugman’s blog.

    The coffee and tea are ready, the cold drinks are in the fridge, and I’ve got waffles with warm maple syrup this morning. I’m off to continue bashing away on the flood of work I was sent. Have a great day.

    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.

    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.

    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.
