Economics and similar, for the sleep-deprived
A subtle change has been made to the comments links, so they no longer pop up. Does this in any way help with the problem about comments not appearing on permalinked posts, readers?
Update: seemingly not
Update: Oh yeah!

Camden New Journal Readers Say The Damnedest Things
Regular Crooked Timber readers will be aware that the people who write letters to the Camden New Journal are a laugh a minute. However, the stuff about the eliminationist anti-Semitic pizza was not even the funniest letter in the CNJ that week. That honour goes to the following:
I CAN hardly believe that Esther Rantzen could make such an inane remark as "it saddens me that anyone could complain about anyone else's enjoyment (Neighbours relish sounds of silence during concert season, June 29)
Almost all anti-social behaviour from drunkeness and violence to child abuse is someone else's enjoyment. And I thought Esther was the founder of Childline, a charity opposed to child abuse
Well, exactly. Esther thought it was sad that people complained about the concerts at Kenwood House, but when it came to spoiling the paedos' fun, she was just as much of a killjoy herself! Hypocrite!
It might have been a Viz-style Letterbocks joke, but it wasn't marked.
