Not long ago, my son and I bumped into Romer and part of her family at the grocery store.
"You're back!" I exclaimed. They smiled and said hello.
Minutes later, examining vegetables near one another, I hastened to explain how we recognized them while not expecting them to remember us. Actually Romer and her husband did, which was rather impressive.
I then recounted seeing the two of them on TV entering the seating area during the inauguration and how they were beaming.
"In fact," I added, "You were always smiling and so poised on television. Were you sad to leave Washington?"
"Christie" as she is called by many, smiled and said no that she was definitely glad to be gone.
"The weather?" I pressed.
"No, not the weather," she smiled.
We left it at that. It was good to see Romer back. Even better to hear her weigh in with that brilliant mind of hers again on TV.
And FWIW, I stopped thinking highly of the credit rating agencies back in 2008. Digby does a better job on this topic than I. Stroll on over to Hullabaloo and check out the latest hullabaloo on the recent setback for the U.S. Pray it away, Rick!!
