A Diversion

Krugman on the Freezing Crunchy Squeeze - catches Tanta asleep

Tanta on vibrating débacles, and whether they might have tentacles (don't miss the comments)

Tanta's Muddled Metaphor Index as a measurement of market panic

Krugman calls the metaphor police and summons the octopus, with contributions from Brad DeLong and Tanta in the comments, the latter not to be missed. Tanta is one of the best writers in the blogosphere, and she and Krugman riffing off each other have just made me cry with laughter about macroeconomics.

For a minute I thought you'd gone daffy. Were you writing in English??!! Followed the links and figured it all out :-)
