It's the Glorious First of June! Eat more convoys!

Arnold Kling has an interesting review of Amity Shlaes' The Forgotten Man and some comments on the Depression. I find it an interesting coincidence that historians are starting to take a more dispassionate look at FDR's handling of the Depression now that many of the people who lived through it are dying off. The major players, of course, have been dead for decades, but the myths and legends about what they did were powerful and enduring. (Instapundit)

Repeat after me, children: "A government powerful enough to give you everything you need is powerful enough to take it all away." (Rachel)

Professor Bainbridge considers sex and the holodeck, riffing off this piece by Jane Galt, which in turn rips on Naomi Wolf for (in essence) acting like Maureen Dowd. Best comment here.

EDIT: I don't know whether it's the ongoing DDoS attack or what, but I'm continuing to have problems posting from work. Yeah, yeah, I shouldn't be doing that to begin with, thank you now sod off. Post has had time adjusted to show when it would have posted if things hadn't been hosed.
