2. Janos Kornai reflects on post-reform Hungary (pdf), important to note that history can run backwards.
3. WaPo on my hypothesis that northern Virginia is becoming two different places. I liked this piece, but the front page sub-headline (“…Fairfax will fail”), probably not from the author, isn’t descriptive of my views. I don’t want Fairfax to become like Arlington, and in many ways I prefer the future of Fairfax, although admittedly it will be “less Millenial.” Perhaps the WaPo sub-headline writers did not consult the MR vocabulary guide, under which “dumpy” usually means “good.”
