These links will make you think:
1) Coyote ponders the similarities between the (now known to be misplaced) pressure toward home ownership and the still constant pressure on youth to go to college. Very interesting.
2) What if we applied standard FICO methodology to compute Uncle Sam's credit score? What would it be?
3) TJIC proposes a constitutional amendment. (Old post)
4) Rand Simberg wonders about why we have a space program, and how this affects our thinking about the risks involved in human spaceflight.
