Forgot to do one of these yesterday:

— Libertarians respond to progressive government by touting nutty alarmist books then cite “soaring sales” for nutty alarmist books to vindicate alarmism.

— Today in stilt analogies.

— Roundabout fever keeps on spreading.

— Crippling recession in Spain leads to surge of bank robberies.

— Greg Mankiw’s political commentary is deplorable.

— Why do doctors keep using Body Mass Index when it doesn’t measure anything useful?

Song of the day is the mashup the internet’s been waiting for, Nirvana vs Rick Astley “Never Gonna Give Your Teen Spirit Up”.
