Beltway Traffic Jam

By popular demand, I’m experimenting with the Classic version of the Traffic Jam, featuring honest-to-goodness links within the post itself. Today, with the Beltway area panicking over snow and the likely traffic snarls that will ensue, is as good a time as any.

The daily linkfest:

  • Megan McArdle reflects back on the bad old days.
  • Phil Carter provides insights into the life of a combat surgeon.
  • Brad DeLong charts Labor Productivity Growth in America and reaches a surprising conclusion.
  • Thomas Nichols gives the highs and lows of being stationed in Hawaii.
  • Dean Esmay points to a disadvantaged group in America that’s flying under the radar.
  • Cam Edwards is willing to rename Christmas if he can rename Ramadan.
  • LaShawn Barber is looking for some Christian guest bloggers.

  5. Guard the Borders: Illegals Hurt Americans

    An amnesty or guest-worker plan helps no one but those who aren’t supposed to be here in the first place. 730,000 Americans each year already are being displaced from the workforce.
