And some good stuff, which certainly isn't what I would have called that new Star Trek movie. Wow, what a clunker...
1. Correlation, or causation? Close call -- from Chris Blattman.
2. I think Paul Krugman is essentially correct on differences right now between liberals and conservatives -- and that it's not an inherent difference, but one that happens to be the case now, essentially through (in my view) historical accident.
3. On the Monkey Cage: David Schleicher on the direct election of US Senators. Interesting.
4. And Monica Gray brings us Memorial Day speeches from old presidents.
