This is fan mail to the Freakonomics folks:

Recently I borrowed a copy of your book from a friend (so basically pure benefit for me) and I must say I am impressed. I am well-read, reading on average four books per week. With that said, I love SuperFreakonomics. In fact I enjoyed them so much and your unorthodox approach, that I award both authors the rank of Honored Elder. To quantify, this here is my own ranking of authorial/analytical skill:

Philosopher King
Honored Elder
Ruler of the Aegis
Lord of the Manor
Dan Quayle
Kim Jong Il
Alan Greenspan

Why is Alan Greenspan so bad? Because he created an interest environment that only encouraged bad behavior like: sub-primes, no savings, etc. Anyway, great book. If I am ever in power, you will hear from me.

“These are the days of miracle and wonder
This is the long distance call
The way the camera follows us in slo-mo
The way we look to us all
The way we look to a distant constellation
That’s dying in a corner of the sky
These are the days of miracle and wonder
And don’t cry baby, don’t cry
Don’t cry”

-The Boy in the Bubble
