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!

None Dare Call It A Mustache
On a perennial theme of this blog - that the "Decent Left"'s partisanship for the state of Israel has very little to do with transferred nationalism and is actually just a result of Israel fitting in conveniently with their own vanity politics, here's Airmiles, kicking it like only he can:
He should have snapped his notebook shut, gotten right back on Air Force Two, flown home and left the following scribbled note behind: "Message from America to the Israeli government: Friends don’t let friends drive drunk. And right now, you’re driving drunk. You think you can embarrass your only true ally in the world, to satisfy some domestic political need, with no consequences? You have lost total contact with reality. Call us when you’re serious. We need to focus on building our country."
How did he write the note when the first thing he did was snap his notebook shut? But more to the point, see what I mean? Friedman often suggests amazingly stupid diplomatic strategies for dealing with Iran or the Palestinians. But this isn't because he's an Israeli partisan per se, he's just not very bright. When the moment comes round, he'll suggest a moronic piece of pointless grandstanding with respect to the Israelis too.
