Mr. and Mrs. Buce are just back from a happy hour at the coffee shop, burrowing through the morning's news. My own top pick--it'll be old news by the time you see this, but still take a look at Juan Cole on what is happening in Tripoli right now, I mean right now. Also: Mark Thoma is surprised to find that the unwashed are a bunch of atheists. With all respect to a truly wonderful blogger, I'm surprised that he is surprised. Isn't it the pattern that a spasm of religiousity nearly always leads to upward economic mobility?
Meanwhile Mrs. B, who came within one pair of blunted scissors* of joining the convent at the age of 19, reviews her other life, the life she did not live.
