Yes, yes, I’m going to write something about this whole scans_daily/Peter David brouhaha eventually. It’s coming. But come on, folks, last night’s episode of Battlestar Galactica isn’t going to watch itself, you know?
Also, I tried a can of the Jimi Hendrix Energy Drink, and it in fact tastes kind of like what would happen if you took grape drink and then ionized it with an electric current, so I am sure they could pretend that the electric current would then power a Gibson.
Also also: commenters have been taking exception to why I think conservatives like carbon taxation better than cap-and-trade. It is worth remembering that the original question was “why is David Frum so hot for carbon taxation?” I gave the answer. There’s no reason that carbon taxation can’t be used in a proactive, progressive manner – say, by pairing it with spending or tax initiatives to make it easier for low-income parties to live their lives in a more energy-efficient manner, for example. But David Frum isn’t going to advocate for that part.
