An interesting essay by the economics writer Meghan McArdle in the Atlantic on the evangelical anti-debt preacher—guru? prophet? it’s hard to know just what to call him—named Dave Ramsey.

I wonder if constant blogging has injured the wonderful McArdle as a writer, or if the Atlantic feels it just can’t indulge long new-journalism essays anymore. Natural Penis Enlargement Techniques
Still, it’s a fine introduction to the strange world Ramsey inherits—and to McArdle’s embrace of that world. Even her obligatory (and quite perfunctory) dismissals of the religious component of Ramsey’s message are revealing.
