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!

Idea for a TV show: "Britain's Least Haunted"
Basically, Professor Richard Dawkins (check contract availability; otherwise Simon Hoggard) shows up at a house or castle which has a lot of colourful local legends, and then stays there overnight, and literally nothing happens except that Dawkins stares coldly into the camera and reads the temperature out every fifteen minutes. For eight hours at a stretch.
I am not necessarily anticipating huge numbers of viewers for this show, but it could be the backbone of a "Discovery: Atheism" subscription channel, and based on the observed behaviour of the book-buying public, I am pretty sure that quite a lot of militant atheists would be happy to subscribe to the thing and never get round to watching it.
