Good morning, I'm Steve Inskeep.

The dean of Columbia Business School was not chosen for the Federal Reserve. So students rewrote a song by the Police, portraying R. Glenn Hubbard as being furious with Ben Bernanke, the guy who got the job.

(Soundbite of Every Breath You Take parody)

SINGER: Every breath you take...

Every change of rate...

Jobs you don't create...

While we still stagnate...

I'll be watching you.

INSKEEP: The hits keep coming from NPR News.
