Mr. Greenspan admitted today that he “found a flaw” in his ideology and “that’s precisely the reason I was shocked.”

I found a flaw in my ideology.
What a truly amazing linguistic pretzel.
It has the ring of unvarnished deflection, unrepentant denial of culpability.
I found a flaw in my ideology.
I need to remember that one. And whip it out next time I'm backed into a corner by the harsh light of inescapable truth.

Wow. I just checked and noted it was exactly 363 days ago that I posted here about the Greenspan/Atlas Shrugged Ideology shortcoming. It's been a long, weird year, indeed. Will we look back in another 363 days and be able to say we've learned?
