Krugman’s Cat

If I may be so presumptuous, maybe we should make the physical condition and safety of Paul Krugman’s cat an ongoing metaphor for the health of the economy across the blogosphere. Not sure how to do it. We could have a straight-forward medical condition system. For example, “Paul Krugman’s cat is in critical condition today as news spread that the economy grew at annual rate of 4.5%….” Or we could have like a graph of Krugman kicking his cat, say, ten yards for every point of economic growth. Or maybe, we could let a thousand flowers bloom across the web as various folks figure it out for themselves. Or maybe I could get a refill of my medication and just be quiet.
