Tonight, Thursday June 30, at 6:30 p.m., the Princeton Public Library will screen Inside Job , the Oscar winning documentary about the financial crisis.
It will feature two men, real people playing themselves, with connections to Princeton. One — you might guess — is Ben Bernanke , formerly of Rocky Hill.
A more tenuous connection is (drum roll), my son-in-law, Eric Halperin, then the director of litigation at the Center for Responsible Lending, now working at the U.S. Department of Justice as Special Council for Fair Lending. As pictured. Bask in the light when you can, is my motto.
