  1. Kevin Milligan on British Columbians voting down the HST. I await the median voter selecting Mr. Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho as our next Premier.
  2. Dan Hamermesh proposes making ugly people a protected group in civil rights legislation. See also his recent paper with Jason Abrevaya showing good looks cause happiness.
  3. Ridley Scott to direct new Blade Runner film.
  4. I think this is supposed to be a real paper, not Swiftian satire.
