I don't agree with the rankings, but they've got a complete list.
I imagine most parents have been there. (Meg Gurdon, 12/18.)
Some mothers are alert to every twinge their children experience, and have the pediatrician on speed-dial. Others pay almost no attention in the vague belief that most complaints don’t amount to much. These last (ahem) only begin paying attention when the symptoms have mounted, and then they panic, usually on a Friday night.
From Cafe Hayek:
I own my business and, unlike an employee, I have the option to work as much or as little as I like. At some tax rate, the marginal dollar won't be worth earning. I'll fire some employees, scale down the business or retire altogether and stick my money in tax advantaged muni bonds and do all the traveling and relaxing I can't do now. . . . If I'm not ready to retire and the tax rate gets too high, I may just immigrate to another country because it's very easy for me to get almost instant citizenship in any other country. I respond to incentives and I'm not incentivized by enslavement and neither is anyone I know.
Sales of Ayn Rand’s “Atlas Shrugged” have almost tripled over the first seven weeks of this year compared with sales for the same period in 2008. This continues a strong trend after bookstore sales reached an all-time annual high in 2008 of about 200,000 copies sold.
I've had occasion to use two of the programs listed here, SUPERAntispyware and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, and I recommend both.
. . . but I"m sure he's a man of rare refined taste and judgment. In his "Top 5: Favorite Conservative Moments [in film]" he lists as #1 Danny DeVito's speech to New England Wire and Cable's stockholders from Other People's Money and #2 one of Edward James Olmos's time motivating his students from Stand and Deliver. Two great clips.
(I've noted DeVito's speech a couple of times before, but I may mention it once a year or so just because I can and because it's so good.)

Effective, spooky, very short story from The New Yorker.
It's hard to forecast accurately from five observations. Not even economists would want to try.
