To Much To Do, Not Enough Time: Link Round Up

I had about 3 posts I wanted to share, but it is now late, and I need some sleep. I have scholarship applications due, deadlines at work, and sleep to catch up.

But, here are the links to what I wanted to post about. Post your comments, and I will include them here tomorrow as an update (I'll even link to your blog).

First, stop the bleeding. Then, we can sit down and talk about what to do about the millions of illegal immigrants. Border Fence is legitimate self-defense

I thought this shows how ridiculous teacher unions can be. I am in favor of removing government involvement in Public education 100%. The teachers unions are mad at me

Here is a good update on the Catholic town controversy. Here is a link to the web site for that Hindu town he mentions. There goes those "controversial Catholics" again

Even today, other religions have started up communities founded on their beliefs. In southwestern Iowa, some New Age Hindus have created the town of Maharishi Vedic City, a religious center based on the principles and teachings of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. There's been no dire civil-liberties alert from Couric yet, even though the city has banned the sale of non-organic food and the use of synthetic pesticides and fertilizers.

Stop the presses! Get Couric on the line! Civil rights at risk! Intolerance and bigotry afoot! Oh, wait ... wait. You said Hindus? Oh, never mind
Of course, my favorite source of economic perspective: Sowell. Good article. Oily politics

Well, I'm off to bed. Enjoy.

Communism: Good Money for the "El Viejo"

I guess Fidel Castro is doing ok. Forbes lists Castro as one of the richest in the world, right up there with the Queen of England. I bet he didn't like the attention. It was hard to figure it out, but it seems they managed to throw some numbers together.
In the past, we have relied on a percentage of Cuba's gross domestic product to estimate Fidel Castro's fortune. This year we have used more traditional valuation methods, comparing state-owned assets Castro is assumed to control with comparable publicly traded companies. A reasonable discount was then applied to compensate for the obvious disclosure issues.

Harry Potter Mania -- Discussion

There is a great discussion going on at WorldMagBlog on the whole Harry Potter mania. Nothing to do with Latinos, I suppose, but I thought I would ad my two cents.

A reader commented:
I think its interesting how much people want to be in a group that is all connected by some common thread. It says a lot about our desire for homogeny, not always along racial, sexual or religious lines, but also simply based on what we do in our spare time.The interesting thing about Harry Potter fans vs. Star Trek fans is that a vast majority of them are kids who have grown up with the books, or the parents of said kids. I wonder if what sort of effects this will have on them as they get older (and whether or not they will remain HP fans).We live in an obsessive culture.Posted by David B. at July 22, 2005 07:54 AM This is an interesting phenomenon. I would think it is indicative of our society, more than anything else. I tend to agree with the idea that it shows a desire or need for community or belongin…
