Just bought it, had to. I wasn't going to read 700 pages about economics but it's all the rage right now.

Anyone else?

They talked about it on Stephanopolous this morning.

I'm pretty sure I learned as much as I need to know.

If it's all the rage with other columnists it's probably vastly overrated. Save your money and buy something for the house. How about a nice lamp..

Hmmm yes there is, but they are all in neighborhoods not near mine. Haven't considered going to one in a while.

You have a car, and you drive, right? Like, for example, if someone got you tickets for a White Sox game, say if they were playing the Tigers (like they are right now, but's starting to rain) you would be able to drive to whatever that new White Sox stadium is called, and meet them for the game, right?
