Oh, sorry ... surfing. Let's meander/surf around Mark in Mexico's blogospheroid and se what greater minds are up to.

Roger L. Simon, in A "modern Marshall Plan for Africa", links to Britain's Gordon Brown, then says, "Follow the money."

Instapundit posts this:
Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded- here and there, now and then- are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and
almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty.

This is known as "bad luck."

-Robert A. Heinlein
Volokh et al get going on Zimbabwian democide.

Prof. Bainbridge highlights the difference between empirical and non-empirical.

Jeff Goldstein gets serious on Race and Responsibility and then on Melana Zyla Vicker's "Shamnesty International".

David Adesnick at Oxblog says, "CASUAL ENCOUNTERS: Let this blog be a lesson to all of you who use the internet to find NSA-sex rather than political enlightenment."

James Lileks claims a description of the Democrats' fear of Bush judicial nominees as "mad, bad, and dangerous to Roe."

Hugh Hewitt can't decide whether the Killian forgeries were fraudulent forgeries or real forgeries.

Belmont: What the hay? I haven't been here for a couple of days. I dunno why. Give me a minute to catch up, please. Ok, thanks, lots of good stuff here, like anthrax raising its ugly head again, but Wretchard still can't spell "defense" properly (he spells it "defence" - ha ha, must be from Australia or somewhere).

That's all for today.
