"I'm a Las Vegas magician. One thing you learn doing magic tricks for a living is how close every performance of every magic trick is to disaster. There are no robust magic tricks. They're all hanging from a thread -- sometimes literally. Now, I don't know jack about politics or economics. But what's starting to worry me is just how much what I do resembles American politics and maybe all government." [hat tip -- Michael Morrison] (12/12/11)
