Bad Influence

Hey, we're on the McArdle schedule. No work on the wknds. (8 May @ 1516, then 11 May @ 1032. Bankers hours.)

Which is fine for us in the forcibly retired field, but not a good thing for Megan. If The Atlantic ever wises up & lets her go, the 40-hrs.-a-wk. thing isn't going to look too good on the resume. That's not the dedication required from someone whose issues require that she be successful & known.

40 hours a week? Pshaw. Don't you remember she recently told us all she works something like 60-80 hours a week?

Well, if that includes all the "I had dinner w/ someone who said something but I won't use their names" meals & so on. Maybe.

And of course it's physically demanding & soul-draining work.

Much like digging ditches.

Poor child.

Maybe Megan finally found religion and realized that her laziness might cost her her job, because this morning she has, not one, but two posts up before 9:00 a.m., one of which has a chart showing actual data that she uses to support her contentions. Usually a post containing data is an all-day affair for Megan. We'll see if she can continue at this pace--obviously now she's got to post at least as much as her co-editor, Conor Clarke. This is going to be fun to watch. It'll be like Lucy working at the chocolate factory.
