Brodner’s Person of the Day: Alan “Tin Man” Greenspan

Alan “Tin Man” Greenspan.

Although he sat in on meetings prior to the war Alan Greenspan never raised an objection. Now at book-selling time, he’s full of reflection and wisdom. It was all about oil, he says, and everybody knows it. 4000 deaths later. Hey, he doesn’t disappoint. Welcome to the reality revolution.

P.S: Here’s a free cartoon idea I don’t have time for: Bush and Co in red jackets: “War-Mart”: lowest oil prices everyday.


Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
