Dear Mr. Thomas Friedman

I don't know whether or not you peruse my blog from time to time, but if apologies. My May 26th blog critically discussed your "State of Paralysis" column in the Memorial Day edition of the NY Times. But, in fact, you didn't write that column. That was another of Paul Krugman's masterpieces.

Here's the problem, Tom. Your picture looks a heck of a lot like the picture of Paul Krugman. That is not a compliment. It's not an insult either, but simply a statement of fact. I have a suggestion. Get a new picture.

I am indebted to my faithful follower, FMalik, for correctly noting that Paul Krugman is indeed the author of "State of Paralysis," not Thomas Friedman.
