Ryan Thomas McNeely Has a Weblog... - Grasping Reality with a Sharp Beak: I'm sure this young man is smart and personable.

But isn't this a perfect example of upper class privilege in action?

We have a 20%+ U6 rate and Brad is featuring a kid from an upper middle class town who went to an elite university, then worked for another product of elite parents and universities(Yglesias)then attended another elite university.

Alex is correct- Jesus wept.

It's hardly "upper class." I'm not getting him a job at Goldman Sachs.

The primary original purpose of this weblog was as my archive of interesting things and tickler file, and I do want to be sure to go back and look at what RTM has written in a few months.

Is there somebody else starting out--somebody smart, deserving, etc.--who did no intern for MY who I should be looking out for instead? Yes. Who are they? I do not know: if I knew I would link to them...
