WAITING FOR KRUGMAN….To answer a couple of questions from the comments to this post, the other day I noticed that Paul Krugman was coming to Del Mar (about an hour south of Irvine) to do a book signing. I thought it might be interesting to meet him, so I sent an email to his PR firm asking if he had time to do an interview beforehand. A couple of emails later the answer was yes, I could do one right after some guy from the San Diego Union-Tribune. That’s all there was to it.

And if anyone has any questions you’d like me to ask him, go ahead and leave them in comments and I’ll do my best.

As for me, I figure I ought to actually finish his book before I talk to him, so I’m going to shoo the cats off the chaise lounge and continue my reading.

REPEAT POSTSCRIPT: For Southern California readers who want to meet Krugman, he’ll be at The Book Works in Del Mar from 4-6 pm on Saturday. The Book Works is at 2670 Via de la Valle, a few hundred yards east of I-5. They are located on the north side of the street, in the second floor of the Flower Hill Center.
