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!

High Concepts, part 2
Idea for a show: "Speed Detectives". Basically, all those Morse/Poirot/Miss Marple programmes that used to be on, but aren't any more because people stopped watching them. They're just too slow for the modern audience. The only interesting bit is the last five minutes, when the Great Detective explains the whole puzzle, providing flashbacks to the only interesting or dramatic moments in the preceding two hours. I reckon that with two minutes of set-up and three of conclusion, you could get through six cases in a half hour program. Would get good audiences with the kind of people who like filling in the blanks they missed from the crossword solution in the next day's paper.
Idea for a sitcom: "All The Browns". William Brown, Paddington Brown, Gordon Brown and James Brown, all in the same house. I haven't really got any ideas for what sort of things they might do, but the concept itself is surely worth at least a lunch. Come on, TV producers, you're killing me here.
