I was going to follow up that Kal Penn post with a more substantive post, but I decided to take a nap instead. Advantage: Canavan!

* The U.S. dollar as Ponzi scheme. Via Alex Greenberg. See also: The Investment Delusion and Money and the Crisis of Civilization.

* Paging Superman: Barack Obama calls for a world without nuclear weapons. More at Attackerman.

* Things more likely to kill you than terrorist attacks.

* Two visits to the Mets’ new Citi Field. I still miss Shea.

We Need a Revolution in This Country, Part XXVI

This is probably old news to most people, but I haven’t been paying attention to either baseball news or Cleveland news and I’ve only just found out from Neil that they renamed Jacobs Field “Progressive Insurance Field.”

This is an abomination. I’m still not over the Mets’ plans to leave Shea, and Neil rubs salt in our mutual wound when he informs me they’re moving to a place horribly named Citi Field.
