Worthless Krugman

I agree with Dan on refusing to pay for Krugman. I would go a step further and say that I have stopped bothering to read him even though it is free. I thought it impossible for a semi-intelligent person to somehow lose a debate with Bill O'Reilly, yet somehow Krugman managed to pull it off last fall, with Tim Russert as the moderator no less. Essentially Krugman combines Maureen Dowd's analytical ability with the humor of a typical Kristof genocide column. A recipe that appeals to party-line alarmists, but not to people who actually try to analyze issues on their own.

For the record, my alottment would be:

Kristof $10
Friedman $8
Brooks $3
Tierney $1
Rich $1
Dowd $1
Hebert $1
