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!

Notes from the new self-awareness, part whatever it is
Oliver Kamm, of the Henry Jackson Society, gives William Fullbright a walloping for being a "segregationist".
In fairness, the Senator From Boeing could never be accused of having allowed his foreign policy interests to interfere with the mission of bringing pork back to his home state; they were one and the same. Fulbright, on the other hand, committed the political sin of being against the Vietnam War in 1972 - I think that Oliver is the first prominent Decent to actually follow the logic of international democracy promotion to its conclusion and retrospectively support Vietnam, and it will be interesting to see how long it takes for Hitchens to do a similar volte-face (as he has a *lot* more sunk costs in this case).
Update: It gets better! Ethnocentrism and wilfull indifference to Japanese people! This is shaping up to be quite a year.
