Tuesday bits

  • We could fund universal healthcare and more just from what the Pentagon has misplaced in its budget.

  • Wikipedia is losing its most valuable volunteers. Does this spell the end of user-participation-driven... anything?

  • Local kerfluffle: nicer bike lanes means more bikes on city roads. Local politicians hyperventilate; they and local journalists miss the point. Those people on bikes are shopping locally. Learn to live with them.

  • In the wake of Thanksgiving: Does counting your blessings really help? The answer seems to be pretty clearly yes.

  • A funny to get you through hump day: The world according to Americans, in cartoon form. Too, too, true!!
