Travelling today, so light posting at best.
But first, some business of paramount importance: Ray Charles makes his FMI debut!
It shouldn’t have taken me this long to get to Ray. For me, at least, no matter what craziness is going on in the world, after about two seconds of hearing that voice, I’m fully re-centered. It’s like Ray’s music realigns your cellular structure back to how it’s supposed to be.
By the way, both of these are off of the CD “The Genius of Ray Charles.” If you do not own that, stop everything and procure it immediately. I’m serious about this—it may be the most important thing you’ll learn from this blog.
There’s even a Ray Charles song on monetary policy.
OTEers are encouraged to link to their favorite Ray songs in comments.
I’d like to be Sec’y of the Treasury someday. Not so much for economic policy, but so I could get Ray Charles’ picture on the currency—he’s certainly every bit as great an American as those other dudes. How cool would that be?
“Hey everybody! Let’s have some fun.
You only live but once, and when you dead, you done.”
