Frontier Former Editor

Just when you think you’ve heard every pickup line . . .

Get a load of this one from Alan Greenspan’s new memoir:

“In the book, which has an initial print run of 1m copies, Greenspan includes details of his private life, including his relationship with the television journalist Andrea Mitchell, 60.

After their first date in 1985 he invited her back to his flat to read an economics paper he had written. They have been together ever since. “I’m not threatened by a powerful woman; in fact, I’m now married to one,” Greenspan says.”

Bet he showed her the old Laffer curve too. Eh, eh?

And I hear Andrea now has her own amateur sex site: Economic Modeling.

  7. “After their first date in 1985 he invited her back to his flat to read an economics paper he had written”

    This pretty much sums up the dating scene in DC.

    Thanks. I’m depressed now.

  8. I saw him on 60 Minutes the other night, and my husband and I are divided on whether we love him or hate him.
