Yes, exactly. 

I was furious when I read Matt Bai's little wisp of a thought in today's NYT Magazine, but since I was on a train when reading it yesterday (yes, the magazine comes a day early in these parts) I couldn't descend into the "fit of apoplexy" that it deserved.

So I'm very glad that Josh Marshall did the simple but necessary work of showing just how glib and shallow Bai's concerns with reforming Social Security actually are. Marshall is truly a national treasure; or, perhaps given how much trouble his honest reporting is giving Republicans these days, he's more of a partisan treasure, but no matter.

About us:

This weblog is an ongoing, if periodic, effort by several friends to stay in touch, in reading material, and in ideas.

Lucky Luciano is a former Italian Stallion real estate hustler and Benedict Arnold CEO turned shady lawyer-to-be. He lives in Denver.

Ben is a Paramedic and would-be philantropist who lives in Denver. He knows everything about nothing.

Fuzzy Dunlop lives in Manhattan. He is more than capable of standing up to the stresses of a high crime urban environment.

Jess is a teacher. But have YOU given her an apple? No, you haven't. You should be ashamed of yourself. This crazy feminist currently rests her copy of Awakening in Jersey City.

Matt is a pariah, iconoclast, and professor of gambling living in Oakland.

Miguel Sanchez is not Lionel Hutz.

Daddy Brooklyn lives in Brooklyn. He hates Republicans, though he wouldn't mind being ensconced in the landed elite of New York City.

Paul just smoked my eyelids and punched my cigarette.

Ziggy Stardust has no past.
