Bye Peter.

I have very mixed feelings about seeing one of the smartest people in the government leave his bipartisan post to join the Obama government - excited that he was tapped for the cabinet; sad that he will likely not be allowed to communicate via a blog.  OK maybe 98% happy for him, 1% jealous and 1% inspired.  The man got his PhD 11 years ago, now he's in the cabinet.  

Quite seriously though, in the last few years, the intellectual void in DC was quite apparent; meetings and lectures with Peter Orszag were the rare exception.
