Free your mind

Love this site but am greatly amused by such titles as these.
It's a sad day when those young minds discover that their only reason for existence in the eyes of our Elitist overlords is to be economic beasts of burden, to yield up half their productive lives in the form of taxes and to buy great gobs of Juki-junk with their ever evaporating Federal Reserve Notes. Here's to hoping that day never comes.

Eww, Dukies talking about the "Marketplace Of Ideas." On the other hand, it's always good to know when there's going to be FREE FOOD in Durham!

I'm interested because Tom Palmer's going to be there -- he wrote some great articles on idea futures, and I'd like to meet him.
