    Sure... I just made it one. Looking forward to its adoption by the powers that be, who routinely decide that centuries of order, grammar, spelling and meaning (and not just English) do not preclude change and adaptation just for the hell of it.

    Language is a free-for-all, assuming I can use that term un-problematically, since it does refer to horse racing and toxic male brawling ....

    My guess is there's another 26-year old social media content writer out of work right now, while young David is off getting pantsed at Harvard.

    Oh, well. Plug another one in there. The most important thing is generating clicks.

    Wait ... Maybe they should bring that other kid back ...

    LOL ....


    The Kmeister should stick to lefty politics since that's what he's good at, in a lefty bonehead sort of way.




    Thanks for the giggle.

    It looks like Krugman has since deleted the tweet only an idiot...or someone desperate to get out ahead of a story...would have issued to begin with. He must have gotten a call from his lawyer and/or the editorial staff of the NYT.

    It was probably just one of those headline translation errors that was misinterpreted as something like "Young Asian Girls Economize On Clothing But Splurge On Footwear"...


    Words to that effect, anyway ....
