    PBS Newshour has more from Krugman than they were able to broadcast, and their website segment from Tuesday has extended discussion with Krugman (and counterpoint from Terence Burnham a microeconomist at Harvard, author of “Mean Markets and Lizard Brains”) here:  
    http://www.pbs.org/newshour/rundown/2012/06/paul-krugman-on-europe-doing-the-unthinkable.html

    They say, “Tuesday features the economist’s view on Spain’s euro-woes and its housing bubble, and what Krugman thinks Germany should do about it (namely, accept a rise in inflation).”  (Mr. Krugman, I watched you twice on Tuesday, first from Springfield PBS, then from Hartford PBS; thank you very much.)

    How are the American people going to pay for this? Bases on my teachers salary, “reasonable and affordable” healthcare would constitute no more than 2.5% of my annual gross. Maybe 1% for each additional person in my family/household. That may be reasonable percentage rate for ALL Americans, poorest to richest.

    Tom may have a face for television, but his is THE VOICE of radio.  Please do not dally in this silly medium for any longer than you have to!  We need your dulcet tones streaming from the radio speakers!

    someone or a group filed a 2010 Federal Income tax return using my SS # & name.  I had to physically file a return with the IRS & prove who I was. (Turbo Tax rejected my return) How does this happen & how to I prevent this in the future?
    No other accounts were compromised.  I filed a report with the FTC etc.
    I obviously feel victimized & powerless.  Apparently,this has happened to others.
    What data baae could they have used & why would they have stopped at merely filing a Federal return?
    Could this be a foreign organization?
