Been sitting on these for a few days thinking I would write up something about one or the other. But, facing the truth, I have to say I don't have time to write an essay on them right now. So, I shall tuck them into this cubbyhole for future reference.
Hope. Change. Nixon. Don Surber notes some similarities, and that others are noting them as well.
The Leiter Side of Union Thuggery. James Taranto takes on unions and a pro-union philosopher.
The Limits of Common Sense. A follow up post by Taranto. (Mug tip here to Instapundit.)
Longhorns 17, Badgers 1. Iowahawk puts the funny down for a post to teach Paul Krugman about statistics and education (and why education outcomes in non-unionized educational systems are as good as or better than those in unionized systems). He follows up with answers to questions about statistics and methodology in Badgering the Witless.
And an interesting reprint of an article on cultural revolution in the art world (or, at least, a revolutionary group): Adieu to the Avant-Garde.
