Monday assorted links
1. English departments are better than you think.
2. Angus Deaton on stuff, including what TV he watches (good taste).
3. More Alesina, on fiscal adjustments.
4. The Iranian film “About Elly” is one of the best movies to come out this year. It is by the director of “A Separation,” and it will take you forty-five minutes to start realizing how good it is.
5. Michael Specter CRISPR article from The New Yorker, very interesting, more than just the usual.
