Waste of resources: It appears as though someone got ticked at New York Times columnist Paul Krugman and wrote him a missive filled with words not usually used in polite company.
Krugman's response? Send in the FBI.
I must say that I'm disappointed. I was bashing Krugman before bashing Krugman was cool -- and I haven't even received a postcard from the FBI, let alone a visit by a real, live agent.
It's really ironic that the FBI would be looking into people who send Krugman obnoxious letters. Krugman has repeatedly suggested that it is he who is the victim -- of the government. He jokes with German reporters that he may be arrested by the government and sent to Gitmo.
And then he calls the FBI about a nasty letter. Yeah, all that worry about the government and the stifliing of dissent by Krugman seems kind of foolish now, doesn't it Paulie?
