Potpourri

  • We have been remiss in not mentioning the death of James Buchanan.  Here is an obituary.  Here are reminiscences from Tyler Cowen and Kevin Grier.

    FYI, It’s Kevin Grier, not Mike Munger who shared his remembrance of Buchanan.

      Fixed! To my discredit — and Grier’s — that is the second time I’ve made that mistake.

    At first, I thought you meant James Buchanan the president. Boy, now that’s getting behind.

    The link in the “riveting headline” post took me to an article headed “professor attends conference”!

      I know! The all caps on RIVETING were meant to signal a bit of sarcasm.
