Let me also thank Matt for having me this week. In addition to being a SUPERTRAIN co-conspirator, Matt’s links have been crucial in building the audience for my little personal blog. I don’t know if that makes him my blogfather, but it was a really helpful. And I don’t know how my body reacts to bullets. My working assumption is — badly.

As Matt mentioned, I write about economics, but I also focus on urban planning and environmental issues. To save time, I usually try and cover all three at once. Like Brian, I’m amazed by Matt’s versatility and prolificacy, and I anticipate falling short of his standards on both counts. But hey, he got three of us, and he’ll probably be unable to resist putting up five posts a day of his own.

Anyway, glad to be writing for you. Hope you enjoy it.
