How's "peak oil" looking?
Heck of an attic, Karl

One of my all-time favorite books is recently referenced and gets a shoutout

"Supreme Court has turned the 2012 election into a conflict of visions".

From "Jonathan Haidt: He Knows Why We Fight":

At age 41, he decided to try to understand what conservatives think. The quest was part of his effort to apply his understanding of moral psychology to politics. He especially sings the praises of Thomas Sowell's "Conflict of Visions," which he calls "an incredible book, a brilliant portrayal" of the argument between conservatives and liberals about the nature of man. "Again, as a moral psychologist, I had to say the constrained vision [of human nature] is correct."
