Monday Morning Musings

The current Newsweek has some condescending and surprising comments from a head honcho, Even Thomas, in an article on Nobel winner Paul Krugman.

Krugman, who is justly famed for a lifetime of accomplishments, is, according to Thomas, merely enjoying a Warholian moment:  "Krugman is having his 15 minutes and enjoying it . . ."  (Just to remind people, Warhol suggested that in the future, due to media everywhere, anybody would be famous for 15 minutes, even if he/she had done little or nothing to deserve a few minutes in the limelight.  I would instead ask, what has Even Thomas ever done to allow him to disparage a Nobel winner?

More substantively, look at the tile and subheading, and then some text:
 Obama’s Nobel Headache

Paul Krugman has emerged as Obama's toughest liberal critic. He's deeply skeptical of the bank bailout and pessimistic about the economy. Why the establishment worries he may be right.
