Where does our information come from? — This is pretty funny, but the comments are funnier.

The WagonThe Guru's Handbook on intention and recovery.

Mission to MoscowThe Edge of the American West reminds us of Mathias Rust.

The Cost ConundrumWhat a Texas town can teach us about health care. Ah, the magic of market self-regulations. Markets surely do optimize, if you happen to be an investment dollar. A piece of economic wisdom apparent to any twelve year old, except for conservatives, of course.

hal_obrien with more on Sotomayor — Also, I'm still waiting for the GOP to remind us of the Constitutional importance of up-or-down votes.

Best comment on "where does our information come from:" Somewhere Edward Tufte is crying.

Having attended his one-day course on information presentation and adoring the books... and still having pissed off TheGreatET(TM) with some pointed questions he didn't especially like - the idea of Prof. Tufte confronted with this absence of information, presented graphically, brings schadenfreudic joy to my little heart. Thanks for sharing the link!
