TO: Tom Friedman (oh, sorry, Thomas L Friedman)
writing a memo to Barack Obama about how simple it would be to fix all our problems if only he would listen to your simple advice. As Mencken famously said, "neat, plausible, and wrong." Except maybe not the plausible part. See Hendrik Hertzberg if you need it explained to you. You're not helping. Go away.
Chicago Ideas Week wants his memo! (Sigh.)
He was smart enough to marry into one of the 100 richest families in the country.
Other than that, I'm not seeing much intelligence.
I had to stop Hot, Flat and Crowded in the middle because his overly simplistic solutions for how the built world could be "greenified" made me irate.
