Posts are slow because I am enjoying a thrilling new flu bug, complete with chills, fever, a creepily meningitis-like neck-ache, etc.
Weirdly, when I spike a fever, my brain goes into hyperdrive, and I wind up lying there in a sort of awake-REM state with thoughts storming, unsortable and repetitive and obsessive, fixated on whatever I was reading/watching when it hit. This time around it was the excellent intro-to-economics book New Ideas from Dead Economists. I recommend it highly, despite the fact that I couldn't get Ricardo's Law of Comparative Advantage out of my head for six semi-conscious hours.
Also, we'll be extending the Fisher House fundraising through August. I hope to actually produce something useful for you in the immediate future.
