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!

Isaiah Berlin said (and it is widely quoted by people who want to sound profound) that the fox knows many things, but the hedgehog knows one big thing.
Mind you, the thing that the hedgehog actually knows, is how to shove its nose up against its arse and hope that its problems go away by themselves. It's not really all that impressive a thing to have as your Very Big Knowledge.
Cinderella, by the Sonics, a band which really did know one big thing.
Update: Guest suggester Des von Bladet points toward pagan metal stuff. Since I don't speak Saxon, it just seems like fairly decent melodic thrash to me. It does underline the point though that the Nazi-pagan types are the ones with a firm grip on the traditions of pre-Christian Europe, while the nature and tolerance Wiccans really aren't. All of which goes to show that the ancient tribal cultures were a bunch of bastards, and 1950s hippy-dippy chanters are much nicer and better people. Civilisation was a massive improvement on traditional cultures, that's why they call it "civilisation".
