The modern economy and Lucy Maud Montgomery

A disclaimer - I am compelled to post anything (regardless of interest) that cleverly references Anne of Green Gables...it's really an irrational combination of sentimentality, nostalgia and obligation to a childhood heroine. So, I feel like Clarissa was abusing that fact when she pointed the following out to me.

Friendly manipulation aside, I think this is really good - Megan McArdle notes that "for the past few months, listening to GM talk has always reminded me of a story near and dear to the hearts of many girls--the death of Ruby Gillis in the third book of the Anne of Green Gables series." Click through for the excerpt, it's wonderful.
