Just run through it:

— Bryan Caplan’s case for baby-selling makes me want to re-read Susan Moller Okin’s essay on Robert Nozick.

— Did al-Qaeda ever matter that much?

— Fifteen years ago Iran was less than five years away from a nuclear weapon.

— Swedish government’s music promotion site is pretty awesome.

— Mike Shanahan is in DC talking to the Redskins.

Start out the new year with “Walls” from the forthcoming Shout Out Louds album.
