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!

From the department of potentially rather apropos metaphors
This statement is of course full of nonsense, but "1+1=11" is really just the same species of empty boosterism that has people giving 110%. Rather, this bit caught my eye:
Far from changing our editorial approach, our culture, or our mission, this moment will be for HuffPost like stepping off a fast-moving train and onto a supersonic jet. We're still traveling toward the same destination, with the same people at the wheel, and with the same goals, but we're now going to get there much, much faster.
Ladies and gentlemen, the Huffington Post/AOL merger. A supersonic jet, piloted by a train driver.
Update: AB, in comments, points out that this supersonic jet, with its untrained pilot is still heading for the original destination, ie a train station (yes, there are lots of airports which have train stations but these are typically served by normal local services rather than high-speed rail). Frankly this is sounding a lot more like a terrorist attack than any normal journey.
