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!

We're all in this together. I know it's true, I heard the Chancellor say it yesterday. I suspect that some people might have preferred it if we'd all been in this together when things were going well and paying big bonuses, but that didn't happen. But now, we're all in this together.
In general, the phrase "we're all in this together" is a pretty flawless indicator of bad news that's about to get worse. If the person saying it wasn't expecting a shit shower, they wouldn't be looking around for someone else to be in it together with them.
(related, via the song that I was actually looking for, did you know that the American version of Screamadelica had a version of "Come Together" that a) doesn't include the Jesse Jackson speech and b) is quite extraordinarily sappy?)
