November 29, 2012

This morning Bowles and Simpson, the “debt duo”, had breakfast at the St. Regis: “Alan Simpson and Erskine Bowles Address ‘Fiscal Cliff’

Bowles opened with a joke that the pair are like “Sony and Cher” and then a joke he’s used before about what it’s like to be president of a university:
