Fix Up, Look Sharp

. Monday, December 28, 2009

The recent Esquire profile of OMB director Peter Orszag and his team is interesting for several reasons. First, because it provides a glimpse into the OMB, the interplay between economic advisors in Obama's administration, and some of the differences between the OMB and CBO.

But more importantly, it is also the first time (to my knowledge) that a former UNC poli-sci grad student has been pictured in Esquire. That's right: Rob Nabors, who holds an MA from our program and is a former co-author of Dr. Oatley's [pdf], is pictured along with the rest of the team on the second page of the article.

So congrats to Rob, and now I've got a goal to aim for: having my picture published in Esquire.

Long time reader, first time commenter.

We are going to have to aim higher on the goals, but I appreciate the shout out.

Thanks for reading, Rob. Nice to know we have such an illustrious audience.

As for the goals... there's not a chance in hell I'd get in Esquire for my looks. So if my picture is ever in there I must have done something else really good (or really bad, as the case may be).
