One reason I`m a lousy blogger is because I get bored easily, and thus often fail to write about what everybody else is writing about at the moment. This week, everybody was blogging about Obama`s stimulus bill, but I said all I have to say about it in previous months, which has migrated to the edges of conventional wisdom by now.
Conversely, I started talking about the Community Reinvestment Act`s role in the mortgage meltdown in August 2007, but by the time John McCain picked that idea up in the fall of 2008, I had gotten bored with it because I couldn`t figure out a solid answer to the response, "Who held a gun to the heads of these big bankers and made them make loans to deadbeats?"
Now, I`ve finally figured out what really happened
, but who wants to hear about it now?
