MEMO TO THE PRESS (OR HOW TO COVER TRUMP WITHOUT TRUMP COVERING YOU)

1. Stop treating
Trump’s tweets as news.
They’re not news; they’re his gut feelings at the moment.

2. Don’t believe a

J. Bradford DeLong J. Bradford DeLong's blog:

In my opinion, Arindrajit Dube is one of the best economists around in figuring out what we should control for and why in order to achieve real econometric identification. The contrasting pole is simply to throw in a bunch of controls until you have produced the numbers you want. In my view, we d...

Yes.
I'm in love with writing short stories.

Ha, I came to it so late, having written eight books first before I even tried shorter fiction.

VERSE 1
I could do this all day long
Got to show that I am strong
I’ll wait for you to cool down
To minimize the angry sounds
You fought with me and lost
Stop thinking you’re the boss
This cold war is mine to win
Only then can we both grin

CHORUS
A slap to the face
Then I turned away
Escape from this place
