A few weeks ago Mark Rigney invited me to post a text to his blog as a guest writer. Why not. Mark is working to bring some small readerships together, and I think it's a good experiment. Mark Fogal, an economics policy guy working in Saint Louis, contributed the first one, about Keynes and new public works programs. Mine is the second, about Jennifer Montgomery's film Transitional Objects, and my, um, transitional object. Have a read here.
While you're there be sure to check out Mister Rigney's page on beer can collecting. Dontcha remember in the Seventies, when it seemed like every boy and his dad had a beer can collection going? At least in Saginaw, Michigan, it seemed to be that way. Remember how they lined the basement walls?
