A long pondered but only lately realized blog about economics, politics, evaluation, econometrics, Ann Arbor, academia, college football and whatever else comes to mind.

Advancing the debate, or scoring points?
I am not quite sure what the point of these email FOIAs is other than to score points in the day-to-day mudslinging of the red and blue teams. The Mackinac Center's time would be better spent on making the substantive case against public sector labor unions.
At the same time, the ultimate responsibility here, which seems to be missed in all the outrage, lies with the legislators who drafted FOIA laws that can be abused for fishing expeditions like this one.
