The Federal Reserve's beginning a two-day sitdown in D.C., during which the Federal Open Market Committee's expected to cut interest rates again -- by half a point, according to best guesses. And among the committee's voting members is Richard Fisher, president of Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas on N. Pearl Street.

Till today, I didn't know much about Fisher, whose name pops up frequently in economic-news stories. Alas, thanks to the Associated Press money-player profiles today, we get a better picture of Fisher -- who, turns out, is a big fan of John Maynard Keynes, Winston Churchill and Robert Earl Keen, go figure. Also likes classical music, "except for Russian composers." --Robert Wilonsky

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
