1. Grant McCracken (briefly) on dying malls.
2. A nice piece by former reason editor Virginia Postrel on the value of humanities majors.
3. Medical marijuana (i.e. legalization for middle class people) and traffic deaths. The underlying study is a conventional panel data exercise and the results match one's intuition.
4. New word of the day: bruxism.
5. Hitler's planned ranch in Los Angeles.
Hat tip on #4 to Xin Yuen.
