Reflections on a Bumper Sticker

Some links, including some drunken research

I can imagine a situation where I might do research after a beer or two. All that would lead to is miscoding of data. These jackwagons made a breakthrough on superconductors.
Coffee in meetings: good for women, bad for men.
The costs of the war on drugs; cartel wars.
A couple of links on education and inequality.
Why seniors should favor immigration (legal or otherwise).
A couple of links on commodidty prices and growth: Econbrowser and The Economist.
