I Got Nothin’
The combination of a busy day at the office and a slow news day on the domestic policy front have rather limited my blogging today. Norman Geras knows the feeling:
If you’re a blogger and you’re honest, then you’ll admit to the fact that you’re often looking for connections. ‘Connections?’ you ask. Connections. On a day – like many days, after you’ve been going a while – when there ain’t no tempting subjects, you look about for, among other things, some unusual connection – from which you might get an idea, in which there is an interesting conceptual difficulty, to which an argument can be attached. Some connections, however, seem rather more unlikely than others, and I’m bound to say I wouldn’t have expected this one.

Hey, it’s science.
