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!

Israeli election punditry
Well, it's not clear what it all means, or who's going to form a coalition with whom. Is Netanyahu right to say that it's a "victory of the right-wing bloc" or is Livni right that the winner was the party who got the most seats? I dunno. But I think we can see loud and clear from the results that the electorate of Israel has made one decision unambiguously. The Gil pensioners' party went from seven seats to zero. Israel has spoken, and the message is "fuck off, Grandad". I suspect that the problem was that there were never any moderate pensioners, prepared to condemn the excessive nagging and Werthers' Original consumption of the extremists. For the time being, though, pensionerism, however, has been confined to the dustbin of failed ideologies.
Update: corrected something that I thought was a synonym but isn't.
