Good morning. Things are moving steadily on the job market, which is good, because Valerie’s loans are coming due. Because God has never ceased to be faithful in this way, I fully expect to start getting a check about the time our bills start to go up again.
- Nostalgia kick: You Can’t do that on Television was definitely on that list of TV shows I knew I wouldn’t be allowed to watch if we ever got cable. But I loved it anyway, and consoled myself that I hadn’t been barred from watching it when the opportunity arose, because my parents didn’t know it existed. Now it’s all on YouTube. Here’s a clip of Alanis Morisette getting permission from her mom to be a Rock Star. The irony abounds.
- On economics:
- One economist who loves price controls.
- AIG Bonuses, and the tool shed.
- Negative interest rates.
- Misconceptions about the possession of wealth.

- “The wealth of the sinner is stored up for the righteous.” Incedentally, when it happens, the sinner insists that the wealth was destroyed. Vanished. Into thin air. Because he had the wrong wealth.
- $65 Billion makes it good news
- The sin of infant baptism. I like Mark Dever’s perspective. We’re all too jumpy about that “sin” word, almost as if we wanted to deny that people are sinners.
- My favorite email option ever.
- Pilots no longer allowed to carry weapons. I wanted to say something about the second amendment here, but this stoops lower than that. More like forbidding armed police.
- Makes my mouth water.

- Sweet ‘n’ Low daddy. I Won’t go into whether non-profit work is more like Equal or Splenda.
- Note to self: don’t talk like a pirate to a pirate.
- Outrageous salaries are the last resort of the incompetent hiring exec (with due respect to Asimov).
- Best Flight Attendant announcements ever.
- Twitter can get you fired. A concept I’m very sensitive to.
One thought on “Morning Links”
Actually, yes, I did watch You Can’t Do That. A couple of times, while visiting Grammy & Granddad.
