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!

Apparently parakeet season starts today. These parakeets (descended from a pair that escaped from London Zoo apparently) are meant to be a serious plague over London's parks, but I don't think I've ever seen any. The closest I've ever come is when I used to go jogging on Hampstead Heath in the evenings, when one often saw the odd cockatoo.
Puerile, I know. It does get one thinking though, that environmentalists who worry about disappearing habitats are just too unadventurous in their thinking. Who'd have thought that parakeets would have flourished in London? Maybe there are lots of other ostensibly endangered animals that just need to be taken out of their comfort zone. Take pandas for example. They're running out of their tiny little bit of China, so why not give them a run out in Chiswick? They could hardly do worse, and you never know, they might thrive. Similarly, why not introduce a few tigers to Cambridgeshire? If they did well, they wouldn't be endangered any more, and it would certainly concentrate people's minds on the subject of whether the Siberian tiger was actually more trouble than it was worth.
