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!

When elephants dance, mice make puerile jokes
Obama to meet Dalai Lama? I think that this may end up demonstrating the difference between transatlantic headline-writing cultures.
The New York Times or similar, if going for a jokey caption, will probably stretch for "A beloved but largely ineffectual figurehead of a country owned by the Chinese, meets a Nobel Peace Prize winner" or some such.
The UK press will simply be hoping for any sort of minor argument, simply so that the meetings can be described as an Obama-Lama-ding-dong.
Labels: actually that last one is good enough to use anyway
