Confessions of an ex-voter

Saturday 09:55 GMT

I have been unable to discover a tally of the official vote from that year's Nickelodeon "Kids Pick the President" election, but I seem to remember a landslide victory for the Man From Hope.

Four years later an article in that distinguished periodical Time for Kids informed me that Al Gore's wife supported "Parental Advisory" stickers on rap CDs and had hard things to say about Dr. Dre and Eminem.

Quarles Backs Fed’s Gradual Policy Course

Friday 23:42 GMT

Federal Reserve Vice Chairman for Supervision Randal Quarles reaffirmed the central bank’s gradual monetary-policy course Thursday, saying policy makers should avoid focusing too much on metrics that come with a higher degree of uncertainty, such as some measures of labor slack, productivity and inflation.

It means Fed officials should “chart a course that is stable, gradual and predictable,” and follow that “unless some strong and steady signal requires a firm but moderate correction.”
