Reuters article written by one of my former students about an EPI report on cost of living differences authored by one of my former UW grad school mates.  Way to go Paige and Elise!

Steve. Your comment raises a good point. Where one lives is largely a choice and not just within an MSA. In the long run one can choose to live anywhere. This clouds the policy implications.

Google has apparently enlisted Harvard's administration to promote Gmail.

That sounds about right to me too.  Unusual but certainly not unprecedented.

The last couple times I've gone for a longer run, I popped Ibuprofen.  It definitely makes you feel more comfortable and stronger.  Guess I will have to think twice about making that a habit. Though I was only taking 200mg once before each run.  The subjects in the study  were taking 400mg twice - once the night before and again just before their workout.  Would be interesting to see follow up studies with lower dosages.

if non-organic ag were taxed to account for such social costs, how much more organic ag would we observe?

very true.  this is why, for example, the socially efficient level of fracking for gas (and other forms of mineral extraction) is probably much lower than currently practiced and maybe close to zero.

Geeky post on compile time type checking... When it first arrived in java a few years ago, I didn't really see the big advantage.  I have seen the light:

Iterator<Entry<Integer, List<Integer>>> eit = aianFIPSTable.entrySet().iterator();

VMI has sacrificed some of their very best professors and it will have a long term negative impact on their ability to attract talented faculty.   All universities have, at times, encountered problems with abusive administrators, but the good ones (one for which I am fortunate to work) rectify the problem by replacing those who abuse their power, not by telling their faculty to shut up or get out. I truly hope that VMI is able to turn this around by reforming their performance evaluation and dispute resolution processes and giving control over these policy decisions to the faculty. Until that happens, I will have a hard time saying nice things about the workplace environment at VMI to job candidates who email me (which does happen from time to time).

I'm not so sure that the Communications Director has his timeline correct.

Even North Dakota voted overwhelmingly to scrap the name "Fighting Sioux".  Given that the term "Redskin" is more offensive (on par with "Nigger" many argue), it is just bizarre that professional football in 2013 would resist dropping the name.  As many of you know, my level of respect for professional sports is already fairly low, but this doesn't help.  This legal petition is an interesting read of the struggle ...

The priest in this article is in trouble because he wrote that

"the priesthood as we currently have it in the church originated [not] with Jesus...It is more likely that some time after Jesus, a select and privileged group within the community who had abrogated power and authority to themselves, interpreted the occasion of the Last Supper in a manner that suited their own agenda.”

Obviously my atheism slants my views on such matters, but still, I find it hard to believe that such a statement should be controversial even among Catholics.  Of COURSE that's true - assuming there really was a Last Supper and a Jesus to be there for it. (But the poor priest doesn't seem to be questioning those notions.)  Otherwise almost everything we know about social science would be wrong.

The level of hypocrisy in the the opening lines of Karl Rove's Op-Ed in the WSJ today was just outstanding...
"The GOP is undergoing the type of re-examination that occurs whenever a party loses. That useful exercise should be guided by facts."
Is this an admission that most internal debates in the GOP are not?

If they just scream a little louder for more tax cuts, then people will hear them.

I wouldn't say such a misguided interpretation (quoted below) of the election is good for the country, but it certainly bodes well for Democrats in 2014 and 2016.

“Mitt Romney’s loss was the death rattle of the establishment G.O.P.,” Mr. Viguerie said in the statement. “Far from signaling a rejection of the Tea Party or grass-roots conservatives, the disaster of 2012 signals the beginning of the battle to take over the Republican Party and the opportunity to establish the G.O.P. as the party of small-government constitutional conservatism.”

Just went for lunch and got the trout. Patio dining area is very pleasant. Service was reasonably good after a rough start (being told somewhat rudely that we walked into the restaurant the wrong way) Food was quite good - not overcooked, well seasoned. Fish tasted fresh (all 2 oz of it), green beans were delicious (all eight of them!), potato side was also very tasty (all 1 oz of it!). My biggest problem with the experience was the leaving about as hungry as I arrived. Portion was good for an appetizer. Where's the entree I paid for? Since actually eating is perhaps the most important part of lunch, I have to give them a "disliked it" rating, despite an otherwise pleasant experience.
