Re: The Super-Rich Are Different From You and Me (Annie Lowrey & Reihan Salam)

Re: Free Will: In Defense of Not Voting

Re: Free Will: The Virtues of Hypocrisy

This was a very thought provoking diavlog. I wasn't totally convinced by it though.

Re: The Temptation of Eli

Re: Frum Justifies Big Government

Re: Frum Justifies Big Government

Indeed (http://blogs.tnr.com/tnr/blogs/the_plank/archive/2008/07/01/just-how-big-are-obama-s-small-donors.aspx).

Re: Frum Justifies Big Government

What you seem to misunderstand is that Frum is a BIG government conservative, a neocon. Of course he is going to try to justify (certain) federal government interventions. Unwittingly though, he...

Monty Hall problem?

Why was there no discussion of the recent "Monty Hall" criticism (http://www.nytimes.com/2008/04/08/science/08tier.html?_r=1&scp=2&sq=chen&st=nyt&oref=slogin) of these studies recently described in...
