My grandfather, Pál Finta

Pál Finta, my grandfather on my father's side of the family. I never knew him or met him, and before seeing this picture had never seen his face. This is him is as a young man, from my cousin Éva's collection of photos. We are still in Budapest but leave today - I will post more photos and more about the trip as soon as I get a chance.


Those were the days...

Here is a photo shared from my cousin in Hungary, Eva. We have never met - but after I posted some information on line several years ago looking for my father's brother, she found me. We are planning a trip to meet her and her family and maybe her sister's also. My father had three sons, his brother had three daughters.


Charlotte and Tibor Finta, with my aunt Lois Mcelhinney (still a Narciso I at this point I think).

I am guessing this is 1959/60 or around there. A cousin from my mother's side of the family remembers the apartment - which I think must have been where they first lived when they were married - 3rd Ave. (or Second?) in Asbury Park. Maybe it was Tibor's birthday?

Good one

Krugman hits one out of the park:

But this argument applies just as much to the rich as to the poor. And strange to say, you never do find conservatives arguing that we shouldn't worry about higher tax rates on the rich, because they'll just work harder to be able to afford those luxury goods; or that a higher inheritance tax probably expands work effort, because it would force the Paris Hiltons of this world to go out and get real jobs.

Funny how that works.
