No Imagination

I am always quick to admit I have no imagination. When I read the title of Paul Krugman's recent post -- Lawn Guyland Is America’s Future -- I thought he was referring to the rise of landscaping companies as the best "new engine of economic growth" we could hope for.

I had to say the words aloud -- "Lawn Guyland" -- to get PK's reference. Oh, well.

Anyway, in that post Krugman writes

A new Tea Party-backed county executive has taken office, gone ahead and cut taxes — and can’t come up with offsetting spending cuts.

"...can't come up with offsetting spending cuts."

Well, yeah. Because excessive spending is not the problem.

See? I say the same thing, over and over. No imagination at all.
