1. First evidence Cowen is reading the Marginal Counterrevolution (the most obvious candidate for the convergence of links, Steve Sailer, is out of the question in this particular case).

2. Turkiye delenda est.

3. Gary North channeling Caplan on college education and signaling.

4. Israel Shamir confirms what everyone knew all along, but was too afraid to say (Israel and the IS).

5. Cochrane on tax reform.

6. Americans with no specific religion ticking up to 20% of the population. Not sure if this is a good thing, even though I’m about as convinced an atheist as you can get in America.

7. Virtually all Ethiopians consider religion important; virtually no Chinese do. No; really, I am surprised by China’s percentage.

8. Typical American lives 18 miles from his/her mother (the decline of American mobility).
