I scored a seminal interview with Hank Paulson a few months ago, and I figured I’d follow it up by talking to that other Dartmouth grad in the news, Timothy Geithner. He cheated on his taxes, but he seems pretty chill. I emailed him yesterday for an interview ( Here’s our chat:

So it turns out that the guy whose signature is on all our dollar bills is a Dartmouth grad. His name’s Hank Paulson, and he’s the “Secretary of the Treasury”. I emailed him yesterday for an interview ( We chatted this afternoon:

Yaya DaCosta, a former America’s Next Top Model contestant and Brown University alum, is currently doing very well for herself onstage. She hasn’t made it onto my ILCIWSUW* list quite yet, but she’s keeping some good company. Leslie Uggams (who may arguably have a better name than Yaya, I don’t know), a braodway diva from way back when I don’t even know is sharing the spotlight with Yaya in the Signature Theater Company’s production of “The First Breeze of Summer.”
I care very little about any of this.
I do however, care about the clip below. This is DJ Ugg’s rendition of “June is bustin’ out all over” which has been stuck in my head all day long. The real lyrics, which are half as good, can be found here.

The hits really do write themselves folks.
