1. Can't resist the opportunity to brag that my JME article with Gordon Tullock has hit 1000 citations on Google Scholar.
2. On the either end of my citation list, one of the funnest and least cited papers I've ever written (and the best-titled paper I've ever written), "Arbitrage in a Basketball Economy", was featured in the WAPO Wonkblog this past week. Co-authored with the estimable Bob Tollison.

4. Finally, my student and co-author, Norman Maynard, has accepted a tenure track job at the College of Charleston!
