Currently open in my browser tabs:

  1. From Carpe Diem, in 2004, Exxon (XOM) paid $27B in taxes–the same amount as the bottom 50 percent of the population.
  2. Via Marginal Revolution, the credit crunch that wasn’t.
  3. Via Knowledge Problem, a futures market for sports tickets.
  4. From Cato @ Liberty, the holes in Bush’s proposed budget. $3.1 trillion with a T.
  5. From Coyote Blog, Pittsburgh public school numbers. The current school system is designed more to benefit administrators than students.
