Hindsight is 20/20

My favorite prediction from "The 10 Worst Predictions for 2008":

“[A]nyone who says we’re in a recession, or heading into one—especially the worst one since the Great Depression—is making up his own private definition of ‘recession.’” —Donald Luskin

Some Holiday Reading Material

Well the end of 2008 is upon us which of course means a bevy of "Best of Lists" to fill-up the remainder of the holiday (read: phoning it in) season. My favorite thus far has been Conor Friedersdorf's "Best of Journalism 2008". From more than you ever needed to know about elevators to the intersection of B'more drug dealers and white supremacist legal theory, Friedersdorf maps out the esoteric landscape of media coverage that was 2008.
