Economics Can Be Bewitching! — Witches, taxation and free riders.

Don't go blaming guns — Tom Tomorrow nails the conservative perspective on public violence.

Manufacturing false equivalencies in the wake of the Giffords assassination attemptFact is, one side is obsessed with using violence as a solution to their political frustrations, and the other side is not. There is no equivalency. Not even close. Or if not using violence, at least extensively using the rhetoric of violence.

[personal] Busy day, busy people

Kind of like Richard Scarry. Yesterday I worked a full day, had brunch with kenscholes, wrote ninety minutes, attended another middle school girls' basketball game (we lost), went to an evening's reading with J— and T—, and wrote a fairly epic amount of email.

Today will be somewhat similar work, lunch with camillealexa, and the basketball game is all the way over in Boring, so I won't make it to the Tuesday night Fireside writers group.

And I used to wonder where the time went.
