AWAY . . .

I'll be away until mid-January (on my honeymoon!).

I'll be excited to return to your comments.

Some possible upcoming topics:
+more on Friedman's "national science project"
+discussion of possible energy alternatives, including raising some questions about corn-based ethanol (and the distortion of this political discussion caused by Iowa's early caucuses)
+???

Last summer I listened to a very interesting radio program about corn subsidies on a little-known NPR show called "Open Source." You can listen to the particular episode, or download it in mp3 format, via this link:

Barak,

Just clear up any doubt: you know who I am. My wife knows a friend of yours from Vladivostok. ;-)

Enjoy your honeymoon!
