Tuesday Morning Quarterback and Compliance


What do these have in common? Gregg Easterbrook includes Tim Geithner, Charles Ponzi, Allen Stanford and Ron Blagojevich in his annual mock of mock football drafts.

For those of you have who have not read Gregg Easterbrook’s Tuesday Morning Quarterback, he is not your normal football scribe. Gregg Easterbrook is a contributing editor for The New Republic, The Atlantic Monthly and The Washington Monthly. He is also the author of The Progress Paradox: How Life Gets Better While People Feel Worse, and other books. If the name sounds familiar in legal circles, that’s because his brother is Frank Easterbrook, Chief Judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit.

Besides the content on the mock of the mock drafts and his annual prediction for the seventh round of the draft (as likely to be right as any of the mock drafts for the first round), Gregg offers his opinions on the AIG bonus scandal, linking Easter and Passover, and the series finale of “Battlestar Galactica” complaints.
