StZA: Krugman wins a Nobel

I started reading Paul Krugman's blog last year, among several others, when I started following the implosion of the housing bubble. His columns are unavoidable if you read the NYT, but his blog is so much better than the simplistic polemics about politics he writes for print. Now, he's won a Nobel. It's interesting when a blogger you read wins a Nobel!
