Fact-checking Krugman

Last week Krugman took on Bush and his connections in "privatizing" Utimco -- the University of Texas Investment Management Co. Well, someone with some credibility on the issue has answered Krugman, William H. Cunningham, former chancellor and former chairman of the board of regents of the University of Texas system. You can read the response […]

Know who you're sitting next to

A friend of mine told me last night about an encounter his wife had a couple of weeks ago while flying back to San Diego from Chicago. Wife (reading sports page of newspaper): I can't believe the Padres are 19 games out of first place! Man seated next to her: Easy. Just settle down. Wife: […]

Cure what ails you

The Dow Jones Industrial Index is up more than 450 points as I write. Less than one hour before the market close. Why?

Halliburton's accounting practices (Pt. Deux)

Hauser and others claim that there's something funny going on with Halliburton's accounting practices. I disagree. (surprised?) One commentator on the Halliburton item below pointed out that any cost-overruns on a Halliburton project would likely be contested.

To be clear, it's still a 1A violation even as they supposedly intended it. But their rush to pass it made it encompass all sorts of stuff.

The judge should not take them at their word that they will "fix" it. The judge should issue the preliminary injunction we requested.

16-year-old Lola Fitzgerald has been racking up skeet shooting championships in and out of her home state. Now a new California law has shut her out of the sport and is threatening her Olympic hopes. https://thereload.com/the-california-gun-law-dashing-young-female-champions-olympic-dream/
