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!

Lancet Survey of mortality in Iraq has been updated
Shit. This is very bad news. Currently estimating 600k excess deaths, CI 450k-900k. Death rate running at 3x its pre-March level. Picking over the rubble, how are ya. Can't get hold of the study itself yet - it doesn't appear to be on the Lancet website but I know a few subscribers. But Jesus Christ. Bad news.
"If you admonish a revolutionary for the bloodshed he is causing, he will tell you that you can't make an omelet without breaking eggs. Ask where's the omelet and he will tell you Rome wasn't built in a day"
- George Orwell, via Kevin Donohue in CT comments (Kevin actually improved on the original quotation, which just says "he will tell you that you can't expect everything to happen all in a moment")
