a $25 gift certificate to the first person to properly explain the *real* reason the joke on the last post is so funny. Or at least tell me why I think it's so funny.

So a Czech and Chechen, they walk into an Irish bar down in Dorchester. the barkeep, he whips out his shotgun from underneath, one-two, takes off both their fuckin' heads. The police come down to question the bartender, 'say Paddy, why did'ya go and kill both them fellows? We only needed the one.' the barkeeper looks over at body of the dead Czech and shrugs, 'well, the other one ain't exactly Catholic lookin himself, ya ask me.'

when the Company Store introduced the lastest queasy money scheme a couple months ago, I recall a number of pundits arguing that the dual mandate was unworkable and the Fed's defense of employment should be dropped. controlling inflation, they say, should be the sole mandate.

seems like I should be writing a post here every six months or so, at least that's been the tendency. and today felt like a good day, with our new kitten "Mr Jefferson" on my lap, and it being a bit cold and windy to go bird hunting with "Richard Padovan," GSP. candycane Brutus swept through the prairie this weekend, dropping as much snow as we probably got last winter in its entirety. not at all a life-threatening storm, but perhaps enough of an event to make the riff-raff think a moment about staying/coming up here.
