Unicorn: Sighted!

The video YOUR GOVERNMENT does not want you to see!

Because the truth is out there, people. And it has a horn in the middle of its forehead.

(From the most excellent Duke Political 2020 Graduation "Marking the Moment" video by Shaun King and Georg Vanberg)

Monday's Child

Monday's Child is Full of Links

1.  A piece on the future of universities. The point being that professors and their self-important classes are missing the point.

2.  So. I know what to do about the meat industry losing workers. Let the workers "price gouge," and charge much higher wages.  Because high prices are better than empty shelves.

3.  Bikeshedding.

4. "Alex, I'll take 'No, it isn't' for $500, please."

5. The end....of the beginning.

6. A video about a unicorn sighting in the wild.

7. How can he possibly think this makes him look good? I mean, forget the merits. Why SAY it?

8.  Parasites that turn their "hosts" into zombie slaves.

9.  Matt Ridley on "Innovation." Interestingly, Ridley is pretty concerned about the covid19 thing.

10. That ol' ceteris. She ain't paribus. At least in international comparisons. I'm not usually a stickler on the causal inference thing, but cross-sectional comparisons are worse than useless, without a lot of other conditions being met.

11. Makes you wonder. I hope the guy wears pants, at least. Even if that covers up his "image of God."

12. Lessons in diplomacy from General Mattis.
