Friday Nights

Nothing like Friday nights in the economics department. Playing Civilization 4 with the grad students and the new prof. And here I thought I was going to get some math assignments done.

To get serious, we closed above parity today. Not that it matters.

This is also why I try not to read the Oil Drum. In a post about a proposed carbon tax, in the midst of reeling off reasons why the tax is bad:
Everyone would pay more for motor fuel.

Well, uh, yeah. That's the whole point. I wish, for the nth time, that they would get their collective act together. It purports to be serious, but most of the authors (definitely not all) who post are very much sub-par. Which is sad, because a ton of work goes into that site.

And 'The Economist' had a poor issue this week. That's about it.
