I am headed out the door to the Salvador Dali exhibit in Philadelphia; supposedly it rehabilitates his often rather sloppy work.

Stephen Dubner — Steve Levitt’s co-author on Freakonomics — wrote this excellent piece, which is worth printing out and reading in its entirety. Here is an alternative link, if the first one doesn’t work. Here is Alex’s earlier post on Fryer, which deals with the effectiveness of buying grades with cash.
