But can he kick flip?

Much to my pleasure and surprise, Timothy Geithner, on deck to become our next Treasury Secretary here in the US, is a fellow skateboarder.

Courtesy of  The Economist:

"Mr Geithner looks a lot younger than his 47 years (though not as young as he did before the crisis began). He skateboards and snowboards and exudes a sort of hipster-wonkiness, using “way” as a synonym for “very” as in “way consequential” and occasionally underlining his point with the word “f***”."
