Above, if you a woman between the ages of 30-45, your name is likely to be Jennifer. On this date in 1938, Chamberlain allowed Hitler to annex the Sudetenland thereby providing “Peace in Our Time”. Morning Reads after the jump!

    Do the boy’s names just read ‘John’ or ‘Jon’ in all 50 states since 1960? Also, I think I’ll have to try reading the Aeon article again after lunch.

    When copy and paste goes bad, “What is Jesus hadn’t been crucified?”. Even Instapaper can’t spell check their own headlines. We should, however, proofread for our own credibility. I say this, knowing I am guilty of the same crime against grammar.

  3. “How the Economic Machine Works”. Finally – an animated video on the economy and deleveraging that I can follow 😉

    I watched all 30mins at lunch. If you don’t have that much time to spare, start around the middle.

    The name map made me think of the movie Logan’s Run, Jenny Agutter, skinny dipping..SLAP, oh, and how so many had the same name that they were followed by a number as in Mary, 12, Jessica 6, etc.

    The Fed’s not effective following the fiscal tomfoolery of financial firms? Say it ain’t so.

    Why is it that the NY media tends to play like the Energizer Bunny on a story until the rest of the country overdoses on their prodigious prose? I’ve been over it with Derek Jeter worship for quite a while now.

    It’s really too bad that Abramson/Manischewitz didn’t move further south and discovered the Muscadine, then there certainly would have been no need of adding sugar. Still, it’s only good as as dessert wine until it is run through a still, but that is a whole ‘nother story. Think mazel tov with spirit(s).

    The private probation idea is so ripe for corruption that I’m not even sure one can detect the line between good and bad. With more bad consequences than good then why is it even being pursued? Oh yeah, legislative corruption breeds…

    I think I prefer the gifs to the current campaign visuals but the licensing would be hell.
