Re: Two Cheers For New Jersey! (Mark Schmitt & Kevin D. Williamson)

I think the poverty discussion is a different one. The graph does refute Williamson's claim that this is some sort of 'statistical anomaly' as he seems to argue here:

Re: The Week in Blog: The World of Sugaring (Bill Scher & Kristen Soltis)

Well I realize I was only only reading the quoted portion of your post, not the entire thing, so I think I was being unfair and overly snarky. I apologize.

You think that saying that the BEST I can do with my time is to bang my head into the wall is NOT an insult?

Re: I wonder how many cato 'Economists' fall on the IDEAS rankings?

Re: I wonder how many cato 'Economists' fall on the IDEAS rankings?
