Each To Its Own Currency
A cold, dank way to end November: that was today. There were even small flurries of snow to be seen. But Northern Hemisphere Novembers have cold and dank woven into their essence, so no big deal.
My favorite headline of the day: "Is the Euro Dead? No, But It's Pining for the Fjords." That went with a Megan McArdle posting at the Atlantic web site. Bring 'em back, I say: the mark, the franc, the lira, the schilling, the drachma, the lot of them.
I can't comment on the economics of that, because I can't claim to understand the nuances of currencies. I want them back for aesthetic reasons.
