  • Trump can’t help being Trump.
     
  • I’ve got to congratulate Donald Trump for how fast he’s become more annoying to the Republican Party than a mouse in an air conditioning unit. He’s like that popcorn husk that gets stuck in the back of your molars and you can’t pry it out with a cord of toothpicks. He’s almost as grating as the Kars for Kids commercial.
     
  • We like prices
    We like prices. We know that sounds strange. Most people like only certain kinds of prices: low prices if they are buying and high prices if they are selling. As economists, however, we like them all.
