Back In The Saddle

Thanks to Andreas for filling in while I've been away and putting up some excellent policy-focused posts.  I've had a good, eventful, and hyper-busy time traveling from NYC to upstate to Bath to Cardiff to Oxford to London to Naples to Salou to Barcelona, excluding all the places I went to where I didn't actually sleep, and now I'm in the hills above Barcelona in a woodland hostel.  The woods seem to be full of wild pigs, and they collect around the hostel in the evening and get snorty.  They don't seem dangerous or aggressive, as far as I can tell -- when I walked towards one, it kind of shuffled off in a sideways direction.

The TV behind me just displayed Mario Draghi intoning, "The ECB is ready to do whatever it takes to preserve the Euro. And believe me, it will be enough." I'm happy to see him talk big, and I hope he actually steps up and generates the easy money that Europe needs.
