Y'all. Y'ALL.

Sometimes I read something so terrible that all I can do is post it here for you to read and then head to comments to give it the thorough mocking it richly deserves.

To wit: "I discovered the rest of America on my summer holiday," by Lawrence Summers.

In case you don't know who Larry Summers is, there is a helpful mini-bio at the end of the article: "The writer is Charles W Eliot university professor at Harvard and a former U.S. Treasury secretary."

I had a few thoughts on Twitter, including this one: I feel like a U.S. economist should know how farms and seasons work.


You know me and my unreasonable expectations!
