I'm here in California, and AOL dial-up is really slow, and so is the computer at home. On the one hand I can appreciate the speed of dsl or cable, and a more up-to-date computer, but on the other hand, these are things that I should be slowly weaning myself from. Ah well. I'm visiting my friend the Dominican up in Oakland; it's been a very good visit. I haven't decided whether I will see the niece yet, but I'm leaning towards "yes."
Light blogging for the rest of break.

No response to my email from Mr. Henry Liu yet; I would like to get answers from someone knowledgeable about how economics but not biased towards neo-liberalism or the Austrian school, or any other school for that matter.
