Scholars (And Their Cute Kids) On Ice

All work and no play is no good for anyone. So Thursday morning, a bunch of hardworking Cullman Fellow scholars - including author David Bezmozgis and his ridiculously adorable daughter Mae Young - took a breather and hit the ice at the Bryant Park Skating Rink. There are plenty more pics where this came from on the Cullman Center’s Facebook page, but we figured we’d share one more - Cullman Director Jean Strouse looking just as cool as can be. C’mon Jean! How about a triple axel?!

Once the Bush and Obama administrations decided that you couldn’t let these firms fail and they didn’t want the mess of nationalizing them, there was really only one way forward — and that way was to gift money onto these banks until they’re back on their feet and can function at the center of the economy again. But that, to any normal person who is outside the system, just looks ridiculously unfair. It looks like socialism for capitalists and capitalism for everybody else. So it’s no wonder people are marching in southern Manhattan.
