Thought for August 2, 2011

Crazy personAnalysis of the debt ceiling resolution—not quite a done deal as I write this—is dominating public affairs programming on public radio today. This has made me think about our recent madness rather more than I am comfortable with. Ruminating on what has happened inspired me to add another observation on my page of aphorisms on Lionel Deimel’s Farrago:
Negotiating with crazy people leads to crazy agreements.
You can find this and other gems of wisdom (or insanity) here.
