I've just discovered I'm a Masonomist, and I'd never even heard of GMU before!

The only thing I have to say about Arnold Kling is that he's a keeper.

He's a bottomless fount of ideas concerning healthcare reform.

I love your blogs!

Someone should dumb that list down a little and send it to someone they know who participates in the "forward this to your friends" email practice.

Arnold goes viral. . .

OK, great. But why are all those things listed as things he pledges? They aren't things he promises to do, just basic facts of reality.

SaulOhio – that's the point. We have to start by acknowledging reality. Unfortunately the political process is about wish-fulfillment.
