    Freedom's Just Another Word For Nothing Left To Lose

    So Larry Summers has withdrawn from the Fed race. No profound
    thoughts here, except that it's really, really hard to see how
    Obama can justify not picking Janet Yellen at this point. Nobody
    else is as qualified; any other choice would look like spite.

    Just a personal reaction: I've known Larry for all our adult
    lives, and looking at this sad play I realize how lucky I am to
    have reached a place where I'm no longer in the rat race.
    Obviously I'm plenty combative, and in a way still ambitious
    too; I do track my Twitter followers, wonder how each column
    will do on the most-emailed list, and all that. But there are no
    promotions I'm seeking, no honors I desperately desire that I
    don't already have.

    Nobody's life feels from the inside the way it looks from the
    outside. But at least as far as career goes, I'm wonderfully
    relaxed: no more steps to climb, no more boxes to check. I just
    do what I feel I should, and try to have some fun along the way.

    I'm a very lucky guy.

    The Toledo paper must have just printed a bunch of Krugman's columns all at once. Wait, no, Bob read this on the New York Times website. So much for his whine from a few weeks ago about being stuck with the Toledo paper's willingness to run the column in a timely fashion. I wonder if he will post the column where Krugman criticized Obama's economic policy.
