Assorted links

1. The Onion mocks high speed rail.

2. Top ten Republican thinkers? All but two of these - George Will and Newt Gingrich - are just pundits and/or TV personalities, not thinkers in the sense of public intellecturals. And the rest make for a rather sad list.

3. Kim Jong Il managing by walking around and looking at things. Perhaps he should write an airport book to generate some much-needed foreign currency?

4. Red light cameras illustrate the principal-agent problem between voters and their elected representatives.

5. More TSA wear.

Hat tip on #3 to Lars Skipper
