Up Where the Air Is Clear

Though neither mountain climbers nor heads of state, Mona and Jay got a chance to do a summit – the Ricochet Podcast Summit in Washington, D.C. Before an audience, they ran through a slew of issues, including the Koreas, the Nobel Peace Prize, Rudy Giuliani, movies, and books. And music. Both of them had the temerity to suggest what was the greatest pop song ever written. This podcast ends with one of the selections (a Jackson 5 number).

    Jay, with your preferred flat tax policy – your local New York taxes would have still gone up by way of not deducting local taxes (as that is what it seemed you were talking about).

    I have to agree with Mona on “Penny Lane” being better than any of the 4 that Jay mentioned. But they’re both wrong. The best pop song of all time is “Yesterday”.
