Tramp After Hours: Beard Reaching Out to the People Edition

This post has a couple of purposes:

1. To announce that Tramp will have a slow day tomorrow due to some traveling. Posts will occur as allowable.

2. According to a post on Business Week, B squared is going to holding town hall meetings in Kansas City on July 26.

Fed Statement:
Federal Reserve Board Chairman Ben S. Bernanke will participate in an hour-long town hall-type meeting with local citizens at 7 p.m. EDT (6 p.m. CDT) on Sunday, July 26 at the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City, 1 Memorial Drive, Kansas City, Mo. The event will be moderated by Jim Lehrer, anchor and executive editor of The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer.
Well well well. Is Ben doing a little campaigning for himself to keep the job as Chief Money-Money Man? Be far from us here at Tramp to speculate about why all the transparency, but we'll give it a shot:

BEARD (interior monologue): A certain someone that has the same initials as body odor is all about the transparency...this might be a good move, because he's pretty good at those town halls and then we'd have something to talk about other than how Tim has probably never gotten laid since he's been in DC and the girls here are easy...and I'm from the South. I can do this. I'm folksy. Missouri-types will like me. They're a folksy bunch too.

But also a certain other someone has decided that he's not wearing socks anymore and he's getting a little too comfortable thinking he can just waltz in after being at that geekshop DE Shaw and Harvard and start running things because he didn't have to deal with Paulson and C-3P0-John Thain and Ken Lewis calling at 3 am completely smashed going on about how no one in New York likes him and W...don't get me started....

  1. So I decided I'm going to send Ben Bernanke an invitation to Chuck E Cheese in Washington so we can celebrate the birthday we share together.

    It will be called TranspareCon and will include appearances by Tila Tequila and Larry Summers. Cosplay welcomed but not encouraged.

    Will you join us? Free helicopter suits at the door.

    Seriously, I can't wait to see what The Beard comes up with. That's all I can say. I'll be cackling evilly out front of my apartment til then if you need me...
