Earlier this morning, Amity Shlaes was interviewed on Bloomberg Radio's "Surveillance" program. And she broke some exclusive news: apparently her controversial Depression book "The Forgotten Man" will be coming out in a 120-page illustrated format, aimed at the teenaged/student market.

As my namesake would say: It's two years from now, and a Watchmen-style adaptation is available on DVD...

Best of all, Shlaes described the upcoming format as a "cartoon" version of the book.  Something tells me Jonathan Chait will agree.

Dr. Manhattan

Dr. Manhattan is the pseudonym of a lawyer in New York City who represents, among others, clients in the investment management industry. He started blogging in early 2002, when the entire NYC-based blogosphere could gather in one room (which they often did). In between his frequent retirements, he blogged about politics, baseball, Israel and autism (especially vaccine-related matters) at blissfulknowledge.com. With the regulatory system up for grabs, for this project he has decided to try the novel approach of blogging about matters which bear some relationship to the topics that come up in his day job (within the strict limits of professional obligations, of course). In case anyone was wondering, none of his opinions expressed on this blog are necessarily those of his clients, employer or colleagues.
