Your Thursday Noonan

[Chiefly Musing] I think she underestimates exactly how hostile the press has become with President Bush, and accordingly underestimates how difficult that makes it for his administration to get the message out about the economy.  Additionally, there’s pretty much zero chance the next storyline on the personnel changes in the administration will be positive, yet she still offers it as a possibility.  I’ve noticed that she has somewhat lost touch with broader perspectives in thinking her own views are popularly held.

Response to Great Intimidators

[Get Me Jamie Notter] I was happy to see a letter to the editor in this month’s Harvard Business Review that challenged the “Great Intimidator” article that I wrote about last month.

He also made the same point I did by flat-out challenging the notion that the truth is not that important:
