The Nacilbupera Guzzle

Whoever examines with attention the history of the dearths and famines … will find, I believe, that a dearth never has arisen from any combination among the inland dealers in corn, nor from any other cause but a real scarcity, occasioned sometimes perhaps, and in some particular places, by the waste of war, but in by far the greatest number of cases by the fault of the seasons; and that a famine has never arisen from any other cause but the violence of government attempting, by improper means, to remedy the inconveniences of a dearth. (Adam Smith, The Wealth of Nations IV.5.44)

Nacilbupera Polls

We tried our first poll on this blog and it seemed to work fairly well. The question "Should Eagar run for Senate in 2012?" was voted by about 2:1 in the negative with a dozen or two respondents (sorry, we forgot to record actual results).

As a note to our readers, we decided beforehand as a matter of ethics not to participate in our own blog-hosted polls: all votes are confidential by readers of this blog. Have fun!
