Quote(s) Of The Day
First, Megan McArdle:
I am a big fan of roundabouts, and wish that America used more of them in place of intersections or interchanges. Unfortunately, because we don’t have a lot of roundabouts here, drivers don’t quite get them, and they tend to behave very aggressively–particularly, for some reason, those coming off of K Street.
Hmm, I wonder what that reason could be. Could it have to do with the attitudes of the type of people that spend most of their time there?
Next, The Big Picture, with the apt title “‘Recovery’ Bypassing Small Businesses”:
The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) released its monthly Small Business Economic Trends (SBET) survey, and the outlook for small businesses is still not good. The NFIB counts its membership at about 350,000 small businesses.
I think Ron Paul has the key to understanding that one.
