Re: What People Know About Drugs is Wrong (John McWhorter & Mark Kleiman)

Kleiman is awesome. And a much-needed antidote to the legalize-everything libertarian crowd that so often dominates debate about drug policy. Data! Let's make our decisions on data, not wishful...

Re: Depressing Assessments (Daniel Drezner & Megan McArdle)

Re: It's all about the team

Re: The Yale Woman (Ann Althouse & Eve Tushnet)

Eve Tushnet! Been a fan of her blog for a long time. Never knew what she looked like before. This should be interesting.

Re: Sex, Corruption, and Injury (Bryan Curtis & Robert Lipsyte)

I agree with Bryan on the college football playoffs. Why do we need a playoff? It's a regional sport, with regional winners. There's a reason it was always called a "mythical" national...

Re: Breaking the Economic Oligarchy (Simon Johnson & Paul Kiel)

Re: Science Saturday: Entanglement Untangled

She's a science writer and her father co-founded the Discovery Institute (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Gilder)? That's an odd mix.

Re: Science Saturday: Singularity Edition

I've been reading overcomingbias.com for a long time, more out of interest than because I agree with their world view. It's certainly one of the most pretentious and eliteist blogs on the internet. ...

Unhappy What is the deal with cigarettes on BloggingHeads.tv?

It is so jarring to see people smoke on BloggingHeads. This isn't the first time - others have smoked in the past. Are bloggers somehow given to tobacco addiction? This is so weird.
