All Hail the Shrill One!

The best mainstream media columnist in the US, Paul Krugman, won the Nobel Prize in Economics this morning.

I am utterly unqualified to comment on his academic work, but it's always nice to see great people get big prizes -- and it's quite clear that if there were a Nobel Prize for punditry, he'd deserve that, too.

His latest column -- required reading for the Bush years, but particularly the past few weeks -- is in today's paper, and is on the economic crisis.

So congratulations, and three cheers for the Shrill One!
